General Atomics has announced that during a recent flight exercise in San Diego
the company in partnership with Lockheed-Martin successfully demonstrated their
integrated maritime surveillance system solution for the US Navy BAMS program.
The low-cost, low-risk, highly capable solution for BAMS unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)
offered by General Atomics and Lockheed-Martin is a Predator B derivative
optimized for long range and long endurance missions named the Mariner. The
Mariner established sensors and network communications capabilities providing
persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR).
The Mariner is the first UAV to be equipped with a maritime surface surveillance
radar system in addition to electro optic sensors. Raytheon supplied the SeaVue
maritime surveillance radar and the AN/AAS-52 Multi spectral Targeting System.
Both systems worked together seamlessly all the time, at various altitudes.
The demonstration was observed in real-time by US Navy, Coast Guard and Homeland
Security officials at Lockheed-Martin's Global Vision Center (GVC) in San Diego.
Information provided by SeaVue and AAS-52 sensors was downlinked from Mariner to
LM's GVC while concurrently being simulcast on an encrypted web site for world
