BAE Systems will design and develop lightweight radar jamming technology to improve countermeasure capability of US Army helicopters and unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
The US Army awarded research and development funding to the company, under which it will design technology to integrate adaptive radio frequency jamming and sensing capabilities into one system, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
BAE Systems technology will combine multiple, software-programmable antennas into a digital phased array that will enable simultaneous functions, exceeding existing capabilities while reducing the size, weight, and power (SWaP) of current systems. The technology will enable these platforms to safely fly closer to threats and within contested areas while remaining protected.
"With the continuously evolving threat landscape, it's critical to provide the next-generation of digital phased array technology to better defend our armed forces in electronic warfare," said Chris Rappa, product line director for Radio Frequency, Electronic Warfare, and Advanced Electronics at BAE Systems FAST Labs. "Our technology will give the Army's rotary-wing aircraft and UAS a new, low SWaP system to securely and drastically increase their range of movements in future missions."
BAE Systems has won a $36.7 million US Navy contract to develop and demonstrate a next-generation, dual band Fiber-Optic Towed Decoy (FOTD) to protect the navys aircraft and pilots from advanced threats
BAE Systems unveiled its RAVEN Countermeasure system for combat vehicles as part of its integrated vehicle protection system (VPS) suite of products, on Monday, The RAVEN Countermeasure system is a laser-based countermeasure capable of defeating a variety of guided missile threats without the use of kinetic countermeasures. The directable infrared countermeasure is compliant with the US Army's Modular Active Protection System (MAPS) program and is designed to integrate directly with threat detection and countermeasure cueing systems, including BAE Systems' 360 Multifunction Vehicle Protection Sensor, a long-wave infrared situational awareness and warning system that serves as the eyes of the company's...
BAE Systems has won a $75 million contract for the procurement of 1,440 Radio Frequency Countermeasures and to support US Navys F-35 aircraft. The contract includes maintenance and repair of multi-function test stations in support of the navys fighters, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Tuesday
BAE Systems' active interceptors have earned certification on Gulfstreams G600 and G500 aircraft. The certifications are from the Federal Aviation Administration for the G600 aircraft and European Aviation Safety Agency for the G500 aircraft
