BAE Systems introduces iMOTR
BAE Systems has introduced a new Innovative Multiple-Object Tracking Radar (iMOTR) system designed to provide military test ranges with more accurate time, space and position information for several in-flight objects, the company announced on 8 August.
The iMOTR features a C-band or X-band active electronically scanned array antenna and enhanced clutter suppression for improved accuracy assessments of object launch data, which provides more precise flight-path tracking for objects travelling close to the ground.
Tracking information can be shared with other radars or data collection sensors in real-time. The radar is also equipped to provide higher precision data on a greater number of multiple objects in flight than is possible with legacy test range radars.
By combining in-house radar capabilities and commercial off-the-shelf components, the company aims to allow the test and evaluation community to test larger, more complex scenarios more cost-effectively than multiple-object tracking radar systems currently in use on test ranges allow.
The iMOTR is mounted on a commercial trailer optimised for enhanced mobility. It is ruggedised and weather-proof to resist shock, dust, sand, humidity and rain to improve performance and sustainability.
