Description: The Communications High Accuracy Location Sub-systems - Compact (CHALS-C) is an aircraft-mounted system developed by Lockheed Martin to precisely locate the source of modern communication signals. The US Army awarded a $42 million development contract to Lockheed Martin in November 2006. CHALS-C will be integrated on US Army's surveillance aircraft. The system has been designed to result smaller and lighter than the current systems while delivering improved processing speed and enhanced capability. Current plans call for Lockheed Martin Systems Integration - Owego to supply 40 CHALS-C systems to the US Army by 2009.
CHALS-C's outstanding processing speed enables detection of multiple signal types simultaneously. While legacy systems were capable of processing only one signal type sequentially. The CHALS-C interoperability will allow cooperative search of signal emitters with other signals intelligence systems on a variety of platforms. Two or more aircraft equipped with this new device would be capable of pinpointing the location of signal emissions by measuring the arrival time and frequency shift at each platform.
