Cassidian offers new TR modules for AESA radars
Cassidian has developed a new generation of transmit & receive modules which give the new AESA radars with electronic beam scanning previously unattained performance, the company claims.
“Our new-generation modules increase radar performance, while the cost of production is reduced by more than 30 per cent,” says Dr. Elmar Compans, head of the Sensors & Electronic Warfare unit at Cassidian.
With environmental qualification to IEC 60748, Cassidian now has completed the basic development of a new generation of transmit & receive modules. This milestone will pave the way for using these high-tech components in particularly demanding applications in the aerospace sector.
The Cassidian products using the new TRMs include the Eurofighter’s future e-scan radar, the security radars in the Spexer family as well as spaceborne earth observation radars.
