Northrop, BAE, Raytheon Making DARPA Radar to See Through Clouds - top government contractors - best government contracting eventNorthrop Grumman will join Raytheon and BAE Systems in helping the Defense Department‘s research arm develop a new radar for tracking moving targets through clouds, Military & Aerospace Electronics reports.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency awarded Northrop a contract to join the team working on the Video Synthetic Aperture Radar radar, which DARPA wants to have a similar to current infrared targeting systems in clear weather.

John Keller writes the companies will develop flyable extremely high frequency radar exciters and receivers, synthetic aperture radar scene simulation tools and new EHF radar-processing algorithms.

During the upcoming system design and development phase, the companies will design a flyable EHF high-power amplifier with the goal of helping power a synthetic aperture radar to produce images through clouds.

Contractors will brief DARPA Monday on their progress for the program, Keller reports.
