Harris Plans to Supply EW Systems to Asia’s Air Forces; Andy Dunn Comments

Harris will offer its electronic warfare systems to Asia’s air forces as it sees geopolitical issues as factors that will drive regional interest in EW, FlightGlobal reported Monday.

The report said Harris will promote its Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare Suite, which can be integrated with Lockheed Martin's F-16 aircraft or kept in a pod for legacy planes.

Harris expressed interest in both new F-16 deals and modifications, the report added.

Andy Dunn, vice president of business development for electronic warfare at Harris, stated that there is a need to establish interoperability and consistency in EW function among coalition aircraft, as well as ensure that EW will not be used when there is conflict with coalition forces.

AIDEWS is based on the American firm's ALQ-211 system and is built with a modular architecture to support various mission requirements.

NASA Picks Luna’s RIO Laser for Navigation Doppler LiDAR

NASA has selected a Luna Innovations-built semiconductor laser for use in its Navigation Doppler LiDAR system. “To precisely measure the vehicle speed, direction, and distance, our NDL system uses both Doppler shift and laser beam travel time, which requires a highly stable single-frequency laser source,” said Farzin Amzajerdian, NDL principal investigator from NASA Langley Research Center. “The RIO laser from Luna Innovations has met NASA’s requirements for high reliability, low noise, and ultra-narrow linewidth.”
