Raytheon developing ASARS-2B for U-2
Raytheon is developing a new version of the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar System (ASARS) for the US Air Force’s U-2 Dragon Lady surveillance aircraft, the company announced on 26 March.
Developed under a $320 million undefinitised contract, the ASARS-2B will be equipped with an electronically scanned array antenna to double the surveillance range while maintaining the mapping and imagery resolution of the current ASARS-2A system.
The ASARS-2B completed its flight test at Edwards Air Force Base in California in early 2019.
ASARS-2B is a high-resolution, multi-mode, long-range, air-to-ground radar that provides operators with critical ISR data. ASARS detects and locates fixed and moving targets on the ground in all weather conditions, day and night.
