Raytheon has built a new high frequency surface wave radar system for Canada’s government to perform maritime surveillance missions.
The radar system works to track oceangoing vessels throughout the exclusive economic zone of Canada in an effort to prevent interference with other spectrum users, Raytheon said Wednesday.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership and its adoption by Canada,” said Brian Smith, vice president and general manager of Raytheon’s Canada business.
Raytheon, the Defense Research and Development Canada, the Northern Radar and academic institutions have collaborated to develop the system for 25 years.
The radar system was previously subjected to technical and system acceptance tests.
