Northrop Grumman Corporation has been selected by the U.S. Army to develop a new long-range radar for surveillance and reconnaissance missions, the company announced on Thursday.

Northrop's Airborne Reconnaissance Low-Enhanced (ARL-E) Long-Range Radar will also be integrated with a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and ground moving target indicator (GMTI). Vice president of tactical sensor solutions for Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems Steve McCoy calls the radar a "good fit" for the U.S. Army.

"Our low-risk, affordable solution combines mature Active Electronically Scanned Array technology with operationally proven hardware and software to meet all-weather and long-range ISR requirements," McCoy said in a statement.

The company says the new radar will enhance C4ISR capabilities by combining the Gen 2 Vehicle and Dismount and Exploitation Radar (VADER) back-end electronics and software, designed to detect and follow people traveling on foot or in vehicles, with active electronically scanned array radar.

Acoustic imaging with outline detection
Zurich, Switzerland (SPX) Sep 22, 2015
Reverberated sound can make objects visible. The sonar is used in the shipping industry to acquire information about the seabed or shoals of fish, while gynaecologists use ultrasound images to study foetuses in the womb. Material testing procedures that regularly check for fissures in rail tracks or aircraft support structures are also based on ultrasound. Researchers at ETH Zurich have no ... read more
