Harris antennas for AC/MC-130J aircraft
BAE Systems has selected Harris Corporation’s advanced electronic warfare transmitter technology to protect the US Air Force Special Operations AC/MC-130J aircraft from electronic threats, the company announced on 23 August.
Harris’ phased array antennas will provide transmit capability for BAE’s electronic warfare countermeasure systems on the aircraft. The active, electronically scanned arrays use next-generation semiconductor technology and deliver fast, agile beam pointing and high reliability.
Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems, said: ‘Aircraft like the AC/MC-130J fly at low-altitude and spend extended periods in hostile territory, exposing special operators to a wide range of lethal threats.
'Harris phased array technology will ensure BAE’s electronic countermeasure systems have the directional transmitting power essential for protecting aircraft and crews and bringing them home safely.’
