BAE Systems unveils iMOTR
BAE Systems has unveiled an innovative solution for military applications, using commercial-off-the-shelf technology, at the annual Space and Missile Defense Symposium in Huntsville, Alabama.
The Innovative Multiple-object Tracking Radar (iMOTR™), provides a mobile multiple-object tracking radar giving military test and evaluation ranges a higher degree of accuracy in tracking time, space, and position information (TSPI) for objects in flight.
The solution has been developed by the company over the past two years. It has been designed to leverage existing in-house radar designs matched with COTS components, creating a highly capable, yet affordable multiple-object tracking radar.
“The successful design of iMOTR leveraged industry advances in performance, availability, and affordability for both hardware and software,” said Mark Keeler, acting president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector. “It will deliver a multiple-object tracking radar solution best matched to meet the ever increasing demands of test and evaluation ranges worldwide.”
“Our iMOTR solution is inexpensive compared to the legacy multiple-object tracking radar systems currently in use on test ranges, yet, it delivers the enhanced radar performance capabilities necessary to meet today’s test range requirements and will also reduce test range operation and sustainment costs.”
The iMOTR is mounted on a commercial trailer optimised for enhanced mobility. It is also ruggedised and weather-proof to resist shock, dust, sand, humidity, and rain to improve performance and sustainability.
