Abstract
In this Phase II.5 effort, FIRST RF will fabricate and test, an Active Electronic Scanned Array (AESA) based radar system that is suitable for both collision avoidance and advanced antisubmarine warfare (ASW) sensors on unammaned aerial systems (UAS). After completion of ground and flight testing of the first AESA System, FIRST RF will design, build, and test, and deliver one AESA system using"production representative"processes and documentation. The"production representative"system capabilities will be streamlined to achieve minimum cost while ensuring the system meets the low-profile and air cooled requirements and meets all necessary structural, RF, and environmental enclosures. Finally, FIRST RF will perform a system architecture trade study to analyze the design impacts versus required features for future application of this innovative ACAS AESA architecture for advanced ASW mission capabilities. The successful completion of this phase will allow naval airborne assets to have unprecedented capabilities for operating in a variety of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and force protection roles while satisfying tight payload constraints.
