SRC demos AN/TPQ-49 radar capabilities

24th January 2019 - 06:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


SRC has announced that it successfully demonstrated the ability of its AN/TPQ-49 radar to conduct counter-UAS and air surveillance missions in September for the Australian Defence Force’s Ground Based Air Defence and Radar programme.

The AN/TPQ-49 radar can be upgraded with SRC’s LSTAR air surveillance software to provide UAS air surveillance capabilities without replacing the radar’s hardware.

The Australian Army is investigating options for the development of a counter-UAS and air surveillance capability to help protect soldiers from hostile UAS. Australia already uses the AN/TPQ-49 radar for counterfire operations.
