‘On Our Radar’: Latest Developments in the Global Domain
Defence IQ takes a look into some of the most intriguing developments in the military radar field today. See what’s returning on our monitors this year, including news from the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and the British Isles.
Raytheon making steady progress with AESA Radar upgrades
Raytheon will be in attendance at this year’s conference, with representation from Arnie Victor, Strategy & Business Development in Tactical Airborne Systems. Ahead of Military Radar 2012, he lays the ground work in this session to highlight the key developments for the company’s new generation of systems made over the last year. Reserve your seat today to continue the discussion with Arnie at the event.
How the UK Royal Navy are rehauling radar for the modern era
Lieutenant Commander Mark Ruston, Requirements Manager at the UK Royal Navy, discusses his work on major developments within the radar field where British Forces are concerned, including 4G remediation and upgrades for the 997 radar on the Type-23 frigate “HMS Iron Duke”.
How Thales aim to build greater situational awareness with radar
Defence IQ talks to William Forrest, director for research and technology at Thales UK about how the new ultra-wide band technology from Thales will help build greater situational awareness, especially in urban conflict zones. William also discusses what the future of radar technology holds.
Developments in retrofitting for new radar platforms: Raytheon's viewpoint
Defence IQ talks to Arnie Victor, Director for Strategy and Business Development at Raytheon, about new developments in radar from the company and gives an insight into how the retrofit programme of the F-15 series is coming along.
DARPA looking to ultrafast lasers to create “super radar
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has put out a call for assistance in creating an integrated network of radars through the use of ultrafast lasers, in what is being called a potential revolution for military surveillance. At present, individual ships carry radar that are invariably restricted in scope and limited in reliability, whereas the new project aims to pool all of the local radar into a single system, allowing previously unknown broad-range observation that can provide instant situational awareness to all units within the battlespace…
Japan could host US Early Warning radar
With the announcement this year of US strategic shift to the Pacific, the military is reportedly looking at the possibility of proposing a new early-warning radar off the coast of Japan. Pentagon officials have made it clear in recent weeks that they are keen to counter potential missile threats emanating from North Korea, which are of ongoing concern to Japan and the Republic of Korea…
Hot spot: New radar can “sniff out” Wi-Fi signals
Scientists in the UK have developed a passive radar system capable of seeing – or “smelling” – through walls thanks to a unique attunement to Wi-Fi signals. A team at University College London spearheaded the research and is now in talks with the UK MoD over its potential application in counterinsurgency scenarios…
Military radar and wind turbines learning to coexist
The United States Air Force is currently grappling with the same issues affecting radar systems that the UK Ministry of Defence has recently had to put to bed: that of the ongoing battle between military radar systems and interference from rapidly emerging wind turbines…
US radar station to be built in Qatar
The United States Department of Defence has confirmed that it will be establishing a new missile defence radar station in Qatar. While the exact location of the station will not be revealed, the base will form part of the ongoing effort of US and Middle Eastern allies to build a comprehensive defensive system in the Persian Gulf to protect all involved from the prospect of rogue nation attacks…
Raytheon versus Lockheed in radar contract battle
A bidding war is underway between two of the largest defence firms in the world for stake in a US Air Force mobile tactical radar contract worth $400 million. Lockheed Martin, alongside ARINC, has met Raytheon’s bid for the Deployable Radar Approach Control (D-RAPCON) programme, submitting a proposal last month for a system to allow Air Force and Air National Guard forces to quickly establish tactical military or disaster-relief airfield operations worldwide…
Passive radar puts fear into hearts of stealth fighters
A newly developed “passive radar” has been unveiled, boasting the capability to detect hard to find aircraft, including stealth bombers, without revealing its own location. The technology, devised and delivered by Cassidian, does not emit a radiation signature due to its methodology of monitoring the reflection of radiation from other sources in the environment, such as radio and TV broadcast sites…
Foliage Penetration Radar: Detection and Characterization of Objects Under Trees
Dr. Mark E. Davis looks into the capability. Extract from Chapter 2 of Foliage Penetration SAR Collection Systems.
Electronic Warfare 104: ACTIVE ELECTRONIC PROTECTION (TTR AIRCRAFT) & Target Tracking Radar (TTR)
A target tracking radar (TTR) is designed to provide all the necessary information to guide a missile or aim a gun to destroy an aircraft. Once a target has been detected, either by a dedicated search radar or by using an acquisition mode, the TTR is designed to provide accurate target range, azimuth, elevation, or velocity information to a fire control computer…
Russian Radars: Redux?
Defence IQ’s Keith Mallon reflects on the public failing of the T-50 at a recent air show, and asks whether an aircraft sold on stealth over aerodynamic performance makes sense if a Russian fifth generation aircraft will in fact include be able to defeat low-observable technologies.
