has received an order for its RACE++(R) Series multicomputers from ONERA, the French Aeronautics and Space Research Agency, for a performance upgrade of the Nostradamus early warning over-the-horizon radar
Among major programs are the Digital Scan Converter (DSC) systems aboard the Canadian Aurora maritime patrol aircraft; the United States Navy's Los Angeles Class submarine sonar upgrade program; the Australian Jindalee/JORN over-the-horizon radar
network; and it has been selected by Ericsson Microwave for the multipurpose radar systems development for the Swedish Saab Gripen fighter aircraft.
The Aqua Marine provides detection of over-the-horizon radars
, instantaneous 360[degrees] direction finding, automatic emitter identification, library generation and editing, fast threat warning and a host of other features.
showed interest in Australia's over-the-horizon radars
, the Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN), which can be used to detect missiles, he said.
Both types of awareness can be achieved by various means, including space-based national sensors, maritime patrol aircraft (MPA), unmanned aerial vehicles, shore-based over-the-horizon radars
, all-source intelligence, data links between netted forces, and shipboard sensors such as air- and surface-search radars and passive electronic surveillance systems.
On a smaller scale, the Wisconsin and Michigan-based PAVE PAWS, the largest over-the-horizon radars
in the U.
