BAE Designs Airborne Multi-Intell Radar System; John Kelly Comments

Bae-systems-logo_ExecutiveBiz1BAE Systems has built a new radar system that aims to provide airmen with intelligence data to recognize and monitor opponents’ activities in real time.

The SWaP Multi-INT platform is designed to operate in small manned or unmanned aircraft and combine sensor functions such as weather imaging, change detection and movement tracking in the battlefield, BAE said Wednesday.

John Kelly, director of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance futures at BAE, said the company developed the radar with the goal of helping warfighters capture data simultaneously.

Kelly added the system works by linking multiple sensing modalities together in order to increase users’ situational awareness.

The radar technology is built with a compact infrared and daylight camera and works to locate adversaries’ radio frequency transmitters, BAE says.
