General AtomicsChristopher Ames, director of international strategic development for General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, has noted at several indicators that he said point to a “growing interest in maritime surveillance,“ DoD Buzz reported Tuesday.

Brendan McGarry writes the Department of Homeland Security bought a fleet of a maritime-configured variant of the General Atomics-built Predator B aircraft to aid in the U.S.-Mexico border surveillance mission.

The company has also begun to offer a maritime mode on the Lynx synthetic aperture radar to carry out maritime surveillance missions.

“We created another maritime mode so that you don“™t have to incur the expense,“ Ames said at the Paris Air Show in June.

“And so now, you can fly the aircraft on a terrestrial mission and you can retask it in the air for a maritime mission if something pops up that“™s of interest,“ Ames added.

The maritime mode operates in the same manner as the ground radar, according to Ames.
