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.
One of the leading suppliers of high-frequency rotary joints, castings, and waveguide components for satellite-communications (satcom) systems, Microwave Development Labs (www.mdllab.com), will be joining a host of exhibitors at one of the largest major events for satcom system developers, the Satellite 2013 Conference & Exhibition.
Integrated Microwave Technologies LLC (IMT), a business unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems for MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, showcases its upgraded SkymasterTXDigital COFDM Video Downlink Transmitter at HELI-EXPO 2013 (Booth C3916).
The Lockheed Martin team developing the U.S. Air Force’s next generation Global Positioning System III satellites has turned on power to the system module of the program’s first spacecraft, designated GPS III Space Vehicle One (SV-1). The milestone is a key indication the team is on track to deliver the first satellite for launch availability in 2014.
To address the pressing need for increased reliability and lower life cycle cost, airborne satcom rotary joint customers are now ordering Diamond Antenna & Microwave rotary joints with integral Diamond-Roltran Roll-Rings®. Roll-Rings® are the only rotating electrical contact solution that rolls instead of slides like slip rings and therefore does not create wear debris.
