New radar SPY-6 for the US Navy successfully passed the test

22
According to the news portal "Political scientist", Newsader, referring to the publication National Interest, announces successful testing of the new high-performance radar of the air and missile defense Raytheon AN / SPY-6 (V) in the US Navy.

Advantageously distinguished by an active electronic scanning system, it should come to replace the less sophisticated Lockheed Martin AN / SPY-1D radar with a phased antenna array - the core of the combat information-control Aegis systemsinstalled on destroyers of the Arly Burke type.

Aegis is a multifunctional integrated ship network, which includes controls, lighting and destruction of the situation, including the anti-aircraft missile link, also called Aegis.

In the course of the designated, third in a row, tests that took place on 7 in September, the work of the radar met the expectations placed on it. As part of the test from the west coast of Hawaii, US naval forces simultaneously launched a short-range ballistic missile and a multitude of air-to-surface missiles. The AN / SPY-6 (V) system is said to have successfully detected and recognized targets, and also tracked the trajectory of their movements in space.

This system was designed specifically for simultaneous work with cruise and ballistic missiles, and it functions properly. The radar successfully demonstrates performance in a series of increasingly complex test launches, and after preparation it will provide advanced functionality to the first US Navy Flight III destroyer.

- explained in command.

New radar SPY-6 for the US Navy successfully passed the test


The use of components based on gallium nitride in the new SPY-6 radar made it possible to increase power about 30 times in comparison with the SPY-1 complex. In addition, the new radar is characterized by a large dynamic range, especially in conditions of extensive interference. A specific feature of the SPY-6 is the digital beam-forming, which makes it possible to quickly monitor the horizon for the presence of air targets. This allows the radar station to concentrate computing power to solve missile defense tasks.

      The radar is good, there are no words, it’s only controlled by the same “Aigis” that jammed on the not unknown “Donald Cook” in the Black Sea. And the radar is worth copying by our Chinese friends, which will happen soon, or rather, it happens almost in parallel

            ... well, you are citizens of the American Alternative Radar Basics sect ... well, yes, this is American AN / SPY-1D ... and so what? .. the laws of physics do not apply to him, is he exceptional? ... all the same:
            - receiving path in mW
            - signal-to-noise ratio at no worse than N - dB
            ... all the more, according to the low-flying and high-speed ones, as I wrote above, AN / SPY-1E / D is very bad, therefore they sawed it up to AN / SPY-1 D (V), the main efforts were made to improve the signal processor . Changes were made to the design of the transmitter, as well as to the program that controls the operation of the radar. The number of rays working in the system for highlighting moving targets has been increased. An adaptive beamforming mode is used taking into account the noise level in the corresponding direction ... but it did not work out and therefore we read about the AN / SPY-6 (V) test ... hi

        Where did this story with the Khibiny and Donald Cook come from? You can link to the source.
        This whole story is nonsense for the cheers of the patriots and nothing more.

    In general, I have not seen reports that the trials of the American military (and any other) equipment would not end with an AMAZING SUCCESS. After all, this is also a kind of weapon - we are the most, and no one gives us a decree, even the laws of physics ...
    Obviously the PR for the “partners” is better ... And we have secrecy. And it is right. The enemy, IMHO, should not know what our equipment can do ...

      This is not PR, but technical specifications. They let know exactly how much, how much they allow. Americans have always been stronger than ours in radars, well now ... Yes, and we also have no secrecy, for example, everyone knows everything about armature for a long time, albeit a novelty

      I don’t know what you are reading:
      (offhand)
      “The upgraded Standard SM-3 Block IB interceptor missile failed to hit the target,
      ITAR-TASS reports citing a statement by the Pentagon ABM Agency. "

      And there are many such messages. Nobody, except the USA, reports in detail and honestly about their
      failures. And the statistics of all tests are published. And the percentage of successes / failures.

    Constant work in all areas usually give a good result. First of all, a lot of money is invested (not for theft) in many industries.
    Regarding our secrecy, fire those with. Secret only for us.

    AMDR provides wider detection ranges, improved recognition accuracy, higher reliability and stability, and also reduces the total cost of ownership, as well as many other advantages compared to the current AN / SPY-1D (V) radar on modern destroyers.

    The system is built with separate “building blocks” called “Radar Modular Assemblies”. Each RMA is a standalone radar in a 2'x2'x2 'block. These individual RMA radars can be stacked together to form an array of any size to fit the mission requirements of any ship, making AMDR the first truly scalable Navy radar.

    Built-in scalability could allow the creation of new instances, such as rear landing on existing DDG 51 destroyers and installation on aircraft carriers, amphibious ships, frigates, Littoral Combat Ship and DDG 1000 ships without significant radar development costs.

    For the destroyer DDG 51 Flight III SPY-6 (V) AMDR will include:

    37 RMA - equivalent to SPY-1D (V) +15 dB.
    Meaning, SPY-6 can see the target twice as much as today's radar distance
    4 to ensure 360 ​​° ongoing situational awareness.
    Each 14 'x 14' face is roughly the same size as today's SPY-1D (V) radar
    AMDR Benefits

    Scalability to fit any aperture or size reference
    Over 30 times more sensitive than AN / SPY-1D (V) in Flight III configuration
    Designed to counter large and complex raids
    The adaptive functions of digital beamforming and radar / data processing provide an exceptional opportunity in adverse conditions such as environments with a high level of interference and jamming. It can also be reprogrammed to adapt to new missions or emerging threats.
    All cooling, power, command logic and software are scalable.
    RELIABILITY AND AVAILABILITY
    Designed to provide high availability and reliability, AMDR delivers exceptional capabilities and performance compared to SPY-1 - and has a comparable price and significantly reduces the total cost of ownership.

    AMDR performance and reliability are the direct result of more than a decade of investment in core technologies, using the development, testing and production of high-power gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductors, distributed receiving pathogens and adaptive digital beamforming. AMDR GaN components cost 34% less than gallium arsenide alternatives, provide higher power density and efficiency, and have been demonstrated between failures for an impressive 100 million hours.

    AMDR has a fully programmable, integrated radar controller built from commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) x86 processors. This programmability allows the system to adapt to emerging threats. The commercial nature of x86 processors makes it easy to replace obsolescence - unlike costly technical updates / upgrades and the associated downtime - savings that reduce the cost of maintaining the radar over the life of each ship.

    AMDR has extremely high predicted availability due to reliable GaN transmit / receive modules, low average recovery time and very low number of linear plug-in modules. Designed for maintainability, a standard LRU replacement in RMA can be completed in less than six minutes - only two tools are required.

    This new S-band radar will be associated with:

    X-band radar - horizontal search radar based on existing technologies
    Radar Suite Controller (RSC) - A New Component for Managing Radar Resources and Integration with a Warship Management System
    SCALABILITY. ABLE. RELIABLE. AVAILABLE.
    It is expected that the air and missile defense radar will meet the current and future requirements of the Navy's mission and will be ready to defend against the threats of today and tomorrow http://www.raytheon.com/capabilities/products/

    Today on television there was a message that our ground forces had completed an electronic warfare attack at a range of 4.5 thousand km. About the range, that's for sure, but I didn’t catch the details. Who can explain, maybe?

    Take a moment to find out that with Zumvolt radars, things are not as smooth as on paper.
    "One of the reasons the Navy dropped plans to build additional DDG-1000 destroyers was because the ships SPY-3 X-band multifunction radar is not capable of performing the anti-ballistic missile defense role" (http://nationalinterest.org/ blog / the-buzz / i-just
    -toured-the-us-navys-most-advanced-stealth-warshi
    p-18041)
    Zumvolt is nothing more than a technology demonstrator. Scandalous and very expensive, as the US military has repeatedly spoken out:
    “Eric Wertheim, author and editor of the US Naval Institute's Guide to Combat Fleets of the World, noted that“ with only three ships, the class of destroyers could become something of a [very expensive] technology demonstration project ”” (http: / /www.nationalreview.com/article/443165/zum
