BAe Systems has announced that its Active Electronically Scanned Array AESA
airborne surveillance radar, Seaspray 7000E, has achieved a major milestone of
its development program.
A Seaspray 7000E radar, mounted in the rooftop of BAe's new state-of-the-art
facility in Edinburgh, successfully transmitted over the Firth of Forth for the
first time detecting and tracking airborne and naval targets.
This new radar could be applied to all types of airborne platforms.
The Seaspray 7000E radar system has been build on the Seaspray 3600 COTS
processor, due to enter service in 2003.
The functionality of the Seaspray radar depends strongly on software, which
facilitates the exploitation of the multi-mode capability of the new Seaspray
7000E AESA antenna.
The final Seaspray 7000E airborne surveillance radar will be 25% lighter than
current systems, and much more reliable providing superior multi-mode
Seaspray 7000E radar was designed as an airborne maritime surveillance radar for
naval helicopters, but its flexibility enables a wide range of functionality.
Seaspray 7000E is able to carry out air-to-air, land and naval surveillance for
helicopters, UAVs and fixed-wing aircraft.
