American and Australian experts are developing a new generation of over-the-horizon radar

27
The American media report that Lockheed Martin is developing a new generation of over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) capable of tracking fairly small fast-moving targets at any time of the day. It is noted that the American company conducts research with Australian partners from the R&D Center for Research and Development.


American and Australian experts are developing a new generation of over-the-horizon radar


Information resource DefenseNews writes that the first phase of the operational work on the project, called “Coorong” (the name of one of the national parks in southern Australia), has recently been completed.

The general manager of Lockheed Martin in Australia, Jack Mahone, says that the company, together with Australian experts, is working to create an effective over-the-horizon radar station that will be of interest to international clients.

According to Jack Mahone, the company has the opportunity to work out in practice a new detection technology implemented on the over-the-horizon radar. And if the experiment is successful, then this technology will be able to interest the US Department of Defense.

At this stage, work is underway to improve the efficiency of the detection system for such targets as cruise missiles. According to a company representative, great attention is paid to the ability to detect missiles that are promising hypersonic. At the same time, Lockheed Martin announced the introduction of technology that takes into account changes in the characteristics of the ionosphere in the daytime and at night, in order to avoid mistakes when identifying certain targets.

This project has been implemented for several years. Previously, he even had to “freeze” for various reasons, including some skepticism on the part of potential customers. Now, in collaboration with Australian and American companies, the project has been reanimated. The project participants say that the partnership allows us to achieve significant success in creating the newest radar, obviously counting on orders from the US military.

      Australia, in which case will live longer than anyone .... But I do not envy them!

        Will show off - will live less than the rest, for a separate mainland. Those. on her example, you can show what could be, but at the same time no one else to infect radiation. I think that after such a story, the Americans will not get into a fight, especially since Australia did not have time to join NATO and no one is obliged to avenge them.

      ... hmm, at such a pace before our "Volna" (since 1990) in Nakhodka, as to the moon on foot ... about the "Container" I generally keep quiet ... hi

        they are a great technological power - let them train

    Everything has long been created back in the Soviet Union, even if improvements are needed, then why come up with something from scratch? loot saw?

    Well, if Mahoney got down to business (from the police academy ...) - I'm already afraid of the joint development of Australia and the office, which released a super-duper trough, flying only with the help of a pendel.

      “I don’t understand! What, the Americans and the natives decided to hide behind from the South Pole?” - it is clear who, America. One of the options for breaking through the American pro is the option of approaching through the southern policy.

    Like they want to protect themselves from our hypersonic gliders? Only and we are not so smart-gliders know a lot of good routes to the United States and Australia, so we saw your cunning in white slippers in a wooden mackentosh!

    And why the "constructors" from the National Battalion were not invited. NOT ORDER! Now the giblets will reprimand Obama, or run over like on Ban Ki-moon.

    They should not be jealous! An air shock wave with a medium-sized nuclear explosion travels (from the epicenter) for about 1000 m in 1,4 s, 2000 m for 4 s. 3000 m for 7 s, 5000 m for 12 s! In the event of the outbreak of a thermonuclear war, Australians may live 15 minutes longer than other countries, and then all pi ... uh!

    A pitiful attempt to repeat our "Container"! In the field of radar for the whole world and the Yankees in particular, as before China, in an uncomfortable position to fly since the days of the USSR, and since the leading institutes on this topic were on the territory. The RSFSR even before Russia. What they are now trying to implement in the Union was developed 40 years ago, if not earlier.

      It was not possible to steal in time when the homeland was sold wholesale and retail in 90. And now the FSB is hitting the bad boys, does not allow them to get rich for free on the sale of military secrets ...

      I'm afraid that you are mistaken. For example, in aircraft radars AFAR Russia
      already clearly catching up. The reason is electronics and computers. It’s not enough to catch a signal,
      it must be correctly and quickly processed. And Russia - on Taiwan chips, and not
      the newest.

    Developing and getting real results are two big differences. In theory, even at home I can develop an over-the-horizon radar and say that it will have no analogues.)) But what's the point?

    This is apparently against our Sarmatian, which can fly to America and through the South Pole.
    We also have tracking stations installed in the country, so they install.

    And where will they get energy? In Chernobyl there was the most powerful but that moment, so there, although the station now stands, it died !! A good example of nuclear war. Only without missiles, tanks, planes, and bombs. People have perished. I want to emphasize our people !! But imagine not a thirty-kilometer zone around Chernobyl, but our entire planet. And only cockroaches and mice will live !! They say radiation does not kill.
