Breaking Through the Cost Barrier for Phased Arrays

 

November 14, 2018 – For the U.S. military and contractor ecosystem that services it, intensifying security threats at home and abroad are being met, in part, with increased investments in phased array radar systems. Phased arrays promise enhanced threat detection and mitigation and faster, more agile communication across the modern battlefield. But, where legacy radar systems were afforded massive government funding and ample time for development and deployment, next-generation phased array radar technology does not have nearly the same luxury.

 

The growing proliferation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)-drones-spells a perilous new front in modern warfare and homeland security, whether they are state funded or off-the-shelf recreational varieties, particularly as swarming techniques come to the fore. To answer this threat, a more agile phased array radar platform is required, one that is easily and quickly manufacturable, deployable, field replaceable and adaptable to changing needs. Much like the drones, these radars must be nimble and affordable.
