Curtiss-Wright to upgrade Radar Signal Processing technology

  • 09-Apr-2010 05:47 EDT

A Joint STARS air weapons officer tracks suspected movements on radar during a mission over Iraq in September 2009. The E-8 Joint STARS aircraft is able to track slow moving or stationary targets at sea, on the ground, or hugging the terrain in slow flight.

Northrop Grumman Corp. awarded Curtiss-Wright Corp. a $10.5 million contract to provide an upgraded Radar Signal Processing (RSP) solution for use in the Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) program. The initial portion of the contract, for $5.1 million, was awarded for the Joint STARS Prime Mission Equipment Diminishing Material Source. An additional $5.4 million was awarded to enhance the RSP solution so that it meets advanced radar processing capacity requirements necessary to support future radar performance needs. Curtiss-Wright's Motion Control segment will design and manufacture the RSP solution at its San Diego, CA, facility.
