Trust Automation receives Q-53 contract

11th August 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Trust Automation has been awarded its fifth manufacturing contract for the rugged vehicle automation system for the Lockheed Martin AN/TPQ-53 counterfire target acquisition radar, the company announced on 9 August.

The contract will see Trust Automation continue to provide the motion control system for the Q-53 radar.

The Lockheed Martin Q-53 is a new-generation radar designed to adapt to changing missions and harsh conditions. The solid-state phased array radar system detects, classifies, tracks and determines the location of enemy indirect fire in either 360- or 90-degree modes.

Craig Von Ilten, VP business development, Trust Automation, said: 'We are thrilled to maintain the commitment and confidence from Lockheed Martin with the award of our fifth contract to deliver Q-53 systems. We are honoured to support our troops with the most innovative and reliable technology available.'
