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.
Cassidian has won a €50 million programme to equip the airfields of the Royal Canadian Airforce with latest-technology airport surveillance radars. The Canadian contracting authority Public Works and Services Canada has selected Cassidian to deliver seven of its ASR NG airport surveillance radars to improve the flight safety on Canadian airbases and to enhance the integration of military aviation into civil air traffic. Cassidian is working together with Lockheed Martin Canada as a strong local partner in this project.
Raytheon Co. delivered its eighth AN/TPY-2 radar to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) in support of the U.S. combatant commands. An integral capability of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), AN/TPY-2 is a mobile, X-band phased-array radar that helps protect the U.S., deployed forces, and America's friends and allies by searching, acquiring and tracking threat ballistic missiles and discriminating between threats and non-threats.
800 objects at once and spotting tiny items travelling at the speed of sound are some of the attributes of Artisan, the new medium range 3D surveillance radar which has been developed for the Royal Navy by BAE Systems.
