Numerica has announced that it is developing a new 3D radar for unmanned counter-aircraft systems (C-UAS) and other close-range defense missions.
The company is introducing Spyglass Short Range Surveillance Radar as a new solution to meet the need for exceptional C-UAS detection and tracking performance.
As the company notes, the new 3D radar system will soon be available for a wide range of applications including facility security, border surveillance, convoy and vehicle protection, air surveillance and more.
“Spyglass was born from our first-hand experience of gaps in the short-range radar market,” said Nate Knight, vice president of air and missile defense at Numerica. “The rapidly growing threat posed by autonomous drones was an opportunity to turn our attention to building a new radar from the ground up, leveraging our decades of experience in solving critical air and missile defense problems and applying our proven radar processing and processing tools. would use tracking technology in new ways. ”
Spyglass is designed to detect and track small, autonomous UAS over three and a half kilometers with precise measurements to aid a range of damage control techniques. With a high degree of configurability and out-of-the-box support for distributed operations, the software-driven control functions of Spyglass enable seamless integration into multilayered defense systems.
“We have carefully selected partners for this effort who can support the delivery and integration of Spyglass to key military customers as well as deploy the best US manufacturing talent,” said Jeff Poore, President of Numerica. “We have worked with well-respected partners such as Liteye Systems and NEOTech to bring to life this 3D radar solution that is desperately needed by the US armed forces.”
Liteye Systems, a global technology solutions leader and integrator of military and commercial solutions based in Centennial, Colorado, becomes Spyglass’ exclusive distributor for Numerica. As an industry expert, Liteye provides seamless sales support, skilled field service, and expert maintenance to deliver the best performance and experience to Spyglass end users. Working together to bring Spyglass to market, both Numerica and Liteye have laid a solid foundation for delivering the next generation of C-UAS solutions.
“Numerica has developed an extremely advanced radar solution based on deep-rooted experience working with the US military since 1996,” said Kenneth Geyer, CEO of Liteye Systems. “This 3D radar is uniquely designed from a warfighter standpoint and Liteye is excited to be part of this program.”
