Following the successful completion of Operational Test & Evaluation (OT&E) flight trials in the United States, the SELEX Galileo Vixen 500E active electronically scanned array (AESA) Air Intercept Radar and Mission Management System (MMS) have entered service with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on their Cessna Citation C-550 jet.
Cassidian will equip the new Offshore Patrol Vessel of the Finnish Border Guard with its proven TRS-3D naval radar. The STX Shipyard in Rauma, Finland has awarded the company a contract to deliver the radar by mid-2013.
Cassidian has developed an airborne ground surveillance radar that, through use of the newest ultra-high-resolution radar technology, can monitor wide areas with stationary targets while detecting and tracking moving targets.
Northrop Grumman Corp.'s AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) system has been delivered to Surface Combat Systems Center (SCSC) Wallops Island in Eastern Virginia for the government to begin its first and second phases of Developmental Test (DT). The final phase of DT and the Operational Assessment for G/ATOR will be conducted in Yuma, Ariz.
Cassidian, the defence and security division of EADS, has developed what is known as ‘passive radar’ that can locate even difficult-to-detect flying objects such as stealth aircraft and that itself is practically undetectable.
A paper describing the conceptual design and technology behind the TanDEM-X satellite system for mapping the Earth’s topography with high resolution and high accuracy, authored by a team of researchers from the German Aerospace Center’s Microwaves and Radar Institute, is being honored by IEEE with the 2012 IEEE W.R.G. Baker Award.
