Sense And Avoid Radar Sensor Successfully Completes First Flight Demonstration

X-Band Radar Sensor Affords 60 Seconds Of Avoidance Time

A Multi Sensor Detect Sense and Avoid (MSDSA) program developed by Sierra Nevada Corporation successfully completed its first airborne demonstration using a prototype, x-band radar sensor. This new Sense and Avoid (SAA) sensor repeatedly detected and tracked airborne intruders resulting in over 60 seconds of avoidance time.

"The MSDSA sensor incorporates our unique Electronically Reconfigurable Array (ERA). The entire sensor has been designed and developed as an SAA building block that is easily scalable to meet the challenges of multiple UAV CONOPS and installation challenges," said Greg Cox, Corporate Vice President of SNC's CNS/ATM Business Area.

"The development of SNC's ERA represents a technology and cost breakthrough over current electronically steered antennas," said John Koger, MSDSA Program Manager, Air Force Research Lab.

The MSDSA Program has a second demonstration planned in early CY-2012 and is working with several Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and piloted  Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM's) to select the next airborne demonstration platform.
