M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new market leading GaN on SiC HEMT Power Transistor for L-Band pulsed radar applications.
Diamond Antenna & Microwave and Diamond-Roltran have expanded their joint microwave rotary joint repair business to include the ability to repair and refurbish all OEM rotary joints including those made by Kevlin, Sivers, Cobham, Premier, ITT, Diamond and others.
The first Sea Acceptance Test (SAT) of Thales’ Active Phased Array Radar (APAR) multifunction radar on the new Iver Huitfeldt class frigates of the Royal Danish Navy was a success. The test was performed with the first APAR delivered to the Royal Danish Navy, installed on HDMS Peter Willemoes.
TMD Technologies Ltd., an innovative leader in microwave technology, has opened a US subsidiary and appointed Mike Farley as its CEO. Based in Baltimore, MD, TMD Technologies LLC will offer a significant benefit to U.S. customers, bringing local technical support, dealing with export compliance and handling classified interchanges.
QinetiQ has developed a new radar, Alarm™, specifically designed to provide sufficient warning against short range, low trajectory rocket attacks, enabling personnel to take evasive action and significantly reduce casualties.
A NASA C-20A piloted aircraft carrying the Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) is wrapping up studies over the U.S. Gulf Coast, AZ, and Central and South America. The plane left NASA's Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, CA.
The Raytheon Co.-led Cobra Judy Replacement (CJR) program surpassed expectations during its first tests against a live rocket launch on March 19. From approximately 100 miles off the Florida coast, the powerful X- and S-Band radars integrated onboard the USNS Howard O. Lorenzen (T-AGM 25) successfully acquired and tracked both stages of an Atlas V rocket launched from Cape Canaveral and collected all associated data.
A research team from the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a novel device – the ultra-compact passive true time delay. This component could help reduce the size, complexity, power requirements and cost of phased array designs, and may have applications in other defense and communication areas as well.
MathWorks announced strengthened support for wireless communications and radar design with MATLAB and Simulink. Release 2013a now allow designers to speed up modeling and simulation within the familiar MATLAB and Simulink environments.
