Rockwell Collins today introduced its PSR-500 Perimeter Surveillance Radar (PSR) at Eurosatory 2016.
PSR-500 is a high resolution, compact radar with the capability to track and record intrusions in all weather.
“The PSR-500 couples high performance with low power consumption to bring users affordable and reliable technology,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins.
“Demand for this type of radar technology is growing to address the need for surveillance of geographical borders, critical infrastructures, industrial, commercial or sporting areas,” Alber said.
PSR-500 identifies mobile targets in all weather conditions, including rain and fog, 24 hours a day. It adapts to the surveillance needs of many types of locations, due to its relatively short range and target behavior analysis algorithms.
In addition, the radar sensor can be combined with a camera that is controlled by radar detections, allowing for multi-target, highly accurate video visualization and real-time recording. Compared to similar surveillance radars, PSR-500 requires less energy and emits low radiation, posing no health risk to the user.
Deployment of the radar system at a railroad station, hydroelectric dam and nuclear power plant are key examples of uses for PSR-500’s sensitive intrusion monitoring. The radar system is suitable for locations such as airports, industrial and military sites, as well as public or private urban sites.
Rockwell Collins has been awarded a foreign military sales contract worth $12 million to supply a transportable Blackhawk Operations Simulator (T-BOS) to the Mexican navy. “Rockwell Collins Simulation and Training Solutions, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was awarded a $12,087,181 multi-year, firm-fixed-price, foreign military sales contract (Mexico) for a transportable Blackhawk Operations Simulator for the Mexican navy,” the US Department of Defense announced Thursday
Rockwell Collins will provide up to 2,000 of its MicroGRAM GPS receivers for integration in Neyas Autonomous Behavior Capability Module, in support of Increment 1 of the Naval Surface Warfare Centers Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robotic System (AEODRS). “MicroGRAM provides the US Navys AEODRS program the small, embedded, secure GPS necessary to ensure mission success,” said Mike Jones, vice president and general manager of Communication, Navigation and Electronic Warfare Solutions for Rockwell Collins
Rockwell Collins has been awarded $83 million contract to provide Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System (CRIIS) modification, integration and support to the US Air Force. This contract provides for modification, integration, and support of the CRIIS, including design, development and testing of system and block upgrades, US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday
Rockwell Collins has introduced its combat helmet-mounted Integrated Digital Vision System (IDVS) for warfighters. The advanced display system combines real-time mission data with multispectral vision sensors into one view for greater situational awareness
Rockwell Collins has won a second contract for a Deployable Ku-Band Earth Terminal (DKET) SATCOM system from the New Zealand Defence Force as part of the Strategic Bearer Network Phase 1 program. This contract follows an initial award in June 2013 for one DKET dual-antenna, deployable ground station, the company announced Tuesday
Rockwell Collins has customized its NavFire TM Precision Positioning Service (PPS) GPS to Leonardo-Finmeccanicas VULCANO family for naval and artillery applications. Operating weapon systems in a harsh dynamic environment requires rapid start-up and high accuracy to hit the designated target and dramatically reduce the probability of collateral damages
