LockheedQ53Lockheed Martin has demonstrated the AN/TPQ-53 counterfire radar’s unmanned aerial systems tracking and identification functions designed to support information relay to a command and control node.

The company built Q-53 to detect, classify, track and locate indirect fire from enemies in 36o- and 90- degree modes, as well as deliver multi-mission radar functions through its rockets, artillery and mortars targeting data, Lockheed said Monday.

Q-53 is also designed with a one-tactical-sensor air surveillance and counterfire target acquisition tool, built to capacity to identify and track several UAS, then send data to the Forward Area Air Defense Command and Control.

Q-53’s active electronically scanned array hardware architecture helps the radar’s software to evolve to emerging threats and support warfighters to adapt to these changes, said Rick Herodes, Lockheed Q-53 program director.

The demonstration was held at Fort Sill in Oklahoma as part of the U.S. Army's Maneuver and Fires Integration Experiment.
