Description: The SeaVue is a lightweight, high-performance, long range surface (maritime and overland) mapping radar family for rotary and fixed-wing aircraft, ship and land applications. It is well suited to detect small maritime targets in high seas while scanning a wide area. SeaVue radar provides inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging surveillance of ocean targets, SAR, weather detection and avoidance mode, small target detect, long range detection, Moving Target Indicator (MTI) and search and rescue transponder. The SeaVue are operational in several countries on the Hawker 800, de Havilland Dash-8, Caravan II, ATR-42, CASA C-212, and Embraer EMB-145 (ERJ 145) AEW&C aircraft.
The APS-134LW is part of Raytheon's SeaVue family of radar systems for maritime and littoral surveillance applications. The Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) uses the APS-134LW as a component on the APQ-2 surveillance system installed on the JASDF U-125A aircraft. U-125A is a modified Hawker 800 twin-engine business jet. In March 2006 National Air Support (NAS) subsidiary Surveillance awarded Raytheon a contract for the supply of 10 SeaVue maritime radars for integration into a fleet of Q300 turboprop aircraft. This contract was awarded on behalf of Australia's CoastWatch program which will deliver 10 modified Q300 aircraft to perform maritime surveillance missions.
