POWAY, Calif. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) has introduced the Eagle Eye radar. The new multi-mode radar (MMR) is installed and has flown on a U.S. Army-operated Gray Eagle Extended Range (GE-ER) unmanned aerial system (UAS).
According to the company, Eagle Eye is a high-performance radar system that is designed to deliver high-resolution imagery that can be captured through all-weather environments at multiple times the range of previous radars.
Officials claim that it’s a drop-in solution for Gray Eagle ER and is designed to meet the range and accuracy to detect, identify, locate, and report stationary and moving targets relevant for Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) with enhanced range cannon artillery.
Featuring synthetic aperture radar (SAR), Ground/Dismount Moving Target Indicator (GMTI/DMTI), and maritime wide area search modes, Eagle Eye’s search modes are intended to provide the wide-area coverage for any integrated sensor suite, allowing for cross-cue to a narrow field-of-view, electro-optical/infrared sensor.
