No-Antenna Radar

August 1, 2006 By: Stephanie vL Henkel, Sensors Sensors


The U.S. Navy Super Hornets are being equipped with a new type of radar made by Raytheon. This technology is a departure from conventional radar in that there is no moving antenna. Instead, a computer directs the beams, each emitted by an electronic module, in the directions of interest. The process is rapid, and will allow pilots to concentrate on air-to-air and ground-to-air threats simultaneously. (www.sensorsmag.com/0806/RDRadar)
