Thermal sensor from BAE Systems for use at the heart of demanding imaging applications - Press ReleaseOctober 28, 2020
LEXINGTON, Mass. BAE Systems has unveiled its full high-definition thermal camera core, Athena 1920, which combines exceptional infrared image clarity with a wide field of view. The compact, light, and low-power thermal camera core is aimed at use in demanding applications including security, surveillance, and targeting systems.
FARNBOROUGH, U.K. BAE Systems has won an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract with the U.S. Air Force (USAF) -- worth as much as $400 million -- to compete to develop a digital design for a low-cost combat unmanned aerial system (UAS) that can team with piloted warplanes under the USAF's Skyborg program.
AUSTRALIA. Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace (KONGSBERG) has placed a Purchase Order with BAE Systems Australia for an initial batch of Passive Radio Frequency Sensors for the Joint Strike Missile (JSM).
UNITED KINGDOM. The latest concepts under development for the Royal Air Force’s (RAF) next generation combat air system have been revealed by British engineers on the program. Delivering the technology will be Team Tempest, a U.K. technology and defense partnership formed by BAE Systems, Leonardo, MBDA, Rolls-Royce, and the RAF, and also involving hundreds of high-tech companies and academia across the U.K.
ARLINGTON, Va. BAE Systems has unveiled a next-generation cyber-threat detection and mitigation solution for U.S. military platforms called Fox Shield to help platforms detect and respond to cyber attacks in real time.
Efforts to dominate the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) in the military arena are moving forward as manufacturers develop innovative technologies to find actionable needles in the crowded electromagnetic intelligence haystack. Cognitive capabilities, artificial intelligence (AI), and similarly cutting-edge developments have opened a new chapter in electronic warfare (EW), and so too has the need to keep pace with adversarial advancements.
When the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) required a semi-autonomous software solution to enable complex teamwork between manned and unmanned platforms in communications-deprived environments, they turned to BAE Systems' Distributed Battle Management (DBM) solution. Now, after a number of successful milestones, the DBM baseline program has ended, yet it continues to serve as the basis for disruptive new technology developed by the BAE Systems FAST Labs organization.
