FARMINGDALE, N.Y. Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation, announced that it completed a demonstration of its MOSAIC Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar system in September with the U.S. Air Force during its Combat Lancer 2020 exercise.
The flight demonstration, which took place in September and accumulated over nine hours of operational flight time, showcased MOSAIC's dual-beam surveillance capability and integration into the U.S. Air Force's AgilePod and open architecture systems, including the Open Mission System (OMS) and Common Open Architecture Radar Programs Specification (COARPS).
Telephonics' dual-beam technology, utilizing two independent beams from a single radar aperture, is designed to allow MOSAIC to perform continuous autonomously scheduled Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) or Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) imaging while simultaneously conducting surveillance (GMTI or maritime surveillance/MMTI), detection and tracking operations.
