TMQ introduces the JMA-3300 all-in-one marine radar
- New compact antenna range to test larger... Nordwall, B.D. // Aviation Week & Space Technology;12/5/1988, Vol. 129 Issue 23, p77
Discusses the $8.8 million, outdoor compact antenna test range being built at Fort Huachuca, Az., where the Army will be able to test higher-frequency microwave antennas on larger vehicles and aircraft. The new range extends test capability for to 40 GHz and can possibly be updated to 95 GHz....
- Radar-equipped UAVs may aid all-weather reconnaissance. Nordwall, B.D. // Aviation Week & Space Technology;2/13/1989, Vol. 130 Issue 7, p69
Discusses lightweight modular radar developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Lincoln Laboratory to fit unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) flying over the battlefield and transmit all-weather reconnaissance information. System; Development; Use.
- Microburst radar may spur review of tower's role in aborting landings. Klass, P.J. // Aviation Week & Space Technology;5/1/1989, Vol. 130 Issue 18, p79
Discusses a new Doppler weather radar developed by Lincoln Laboratory that helped avert a potentially fatal airline accident last July 11 at Denver's Stapleton International Airport. The radar provides warning of dangerous microbursts, allowing pilots to execute go-around or abort procedures....
- First improved terminal radar installed at Huntsville airport. Ott, J. // Aviation Week & Space Technology;7/10/1989, Vol. 131 Issue 2, p61
Reports that the Westinghouse ASR-9 airport surveillance radar operating at Huntsville International Airport is the first of 96 improved radars scheduled for installation through 1992 at busy airports with a history of heavy weather. The ASR-9 provides air traffic controllers an uncluttered...
- U.S. Army approves initial design phase of Longbow radar system for AH-64. Bond, D.F. // Aviation Week & Space Technology;7/31/1989, Vol. 131 Issue 5, p27
Discusses the US Army's approval of a 14-month `initial design phase' for its Longbow program, formerly called the Airborne Adverse Weather Weapon System (AAWWS). Longbow is intended as an improvement for the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter and the planned LHX light attack/armed reconnaissance...
- Radar that sees beneath the ground. McAleer, N. // Popular Science;May89, Vol. 234 Issue 5, p113
Discusses how ground-penetrating radar recently pinpointed a lost squadron of World War II planes buried beneath hundreds of feet of ice and snow. Among many other uses, utilities now locate gas leaks with radar instead of digging at the wrong sites.
- Smarter radar can tell friend or foe. Davis, G. // Popular Science;Jul89, Vol. 235 Issue 1, p78
Discusses how engineers are refining unconventional radars and advanced signal-processing computer programs that can help identify images on screens. Prof. Kun-Mu Chen explains experiments he's conducting at Michigan State University.
- Life detector. Davis, G. // Popular Science;Aug89, Vol. 235 Issue 2, p59
Reports on a super-sensitive radar device developed by electrical engineering professor Kun-Mu Chen. Possible uses include locating earthquake victims, finding fugitives, and pinpointing battlefield wounded.
- Go-ahead for European active-array radar programme. // Interavia Business & Technology;Nov93, Vol. 48 Issue 572, p66
Reports on the development of the AMSAR, an active array fire control radar program. RBE2 phased array radar; Phase one of the radar program; Expected partners in the program; Second phase of the program; Estimated development cost of AMSAR.
