Shipboard electronics trend both sophisticated and "retro"

As one of the world’s most sophisticated scalable radar systems is poised to make its debut aboard U.S. Navy vessels, so is a “retro” version of an old approach to ship-to-ship communication. This old-style method enables sailors to use their vessels’ signal lamps to text-message each other on handheld devices without knowing Morse code during [...]

Point Mugu Sea Range adds system to aid in weapons test, development

The Integrated Atmospheric Characterization System (IACS) is a land-based survey tool that measures complex weather features and conditions that could affect laser propagation, such as optical turbulence, transmissivity, and water vapor levels. IACS uses two LIDAR [light detection and ranging] systems to help measure and characterize atmospheric conditions, determine boundary heights, and serve as a [...]

Lockheed Martin helicopter-based EW system passes Navy review

The AOEW AMP AN/ALQ-248 can work independently or with the ship’s onboard electronic surveillance sensor pod — the SEWIP Block 2 AN/SLQ-32(V)6 – to detect and evaluate incoming missiles. AOEW then uses radio frequency (RF) countermeasure techniques to deter the missile. Construction of the AOEW systems is slated to begin in early 2018 at Lockheed Martin’s Syracuse, [...]

DoD certifies ViaSat's IFF flight-environment generator

The ViaSat VRG-1000 is a portable radio frequency (RF) flight test generator that uses an intuitive graphical interface and multiple, simultaneous interactive interrogators or transponders to simulate a true flight experience. The tool’s computer-generated motion program enables accurate attenuation and delay of signals, while the software mimics real-time coherent RF messaging in dense, dynamic signal [...]

Find and fix: The front-end of the kill chain

What we did with our training and primitive equipment back then compressed the kill chain down to days and hours. Today, those tasks are being done by very powerful computers and algorithms, and that change promises to speed-up the kill chain significantly. We covered the evolution of the kill chain in a previous article, so [...]

DARPA conducts initial test for elevated sensor mast on commissioned Navy vessel

DARPA officials say that towed aloft behind boats or ships, TALONS could persistently suspend intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) instruments and communications payloads of up to 150 pounds at altitudes between 500 and 1,500 feet above sea level, many times higher than current ship masts, which would greatly extend the equipment’s range and effectiveness. The [...]

Navy, Lockheed Martin test Aegis Combat System against ballistic missiles

During the test, the system detected, tracked, engaged and launched both missiles to intercept a medium range ballistic missile target. The test, called Flight Test Standard Missile–27 Event 2 (FTM-27 E2), demonstrated the system’s updated software capabilities. SM-6, says Lockheed Martin, offers over-the-horizon offensive and defensive capability by using the previously designed Standard Missile airframe and [...]
