Raytheon has demonstrated the first single-aircraft geolocation capability for a radar warning receiver.
Raytheon displayed this capability on the ALR-69A(V) during a recent flight test, according to a company news release.
"Before this added geolocation capability, aircrews only had an approximate direction of the arrival of the threat signals," Raytheon said. "The ALR-69A(V) now provides aircrews precise information on ground-based threat locations and precision-direction finding for airborne threats."
"Adding single-ship geolocation capability to a radar warning receiver transforms the way pilots execute their missions," said Paul Overstreet, ALR-69A program manager for Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems. "The ALR-69A can now assist with targeting solutions while continuing to identify threats in dense signal environments."
