Airbus Defence and Space has received two contracts worth approximately €130 million from Australia’s new Capability, Acquisition and Sustainment Group to equip and support nine military and civil/military Australian airfields with, what is claimed to be the world’s newest and most powerful airport surveillance sensors.
Airbus Defence and Space has introduced new technologies in its latest air surveillance radar to give the Airport Surveillance Radar Next Generation (ASR-NG) radar advantageous air traffic control capabilities.
Northrop Grumman Corp. and the U.S. Navy demonstrated a new multimode maritime surveillance radar on the MQ-8B Fire Scout unmanned helicopter that will drastically enhance long-range imaging and search capabilities for Navy commanders. Warfighters will now have the latest in radar technology to pair with their current electro-optical infrared payload. Integrating this new radar system will provide the MQ-8B Fire Scout with essential operational capabilities in all tactical environments and will improve how it addresses threats in real-world scenarios.
