ITT Corporation, an advanced manufacturing and engineering firm, declared the successful accomplishment of factory validation trials for their improved coastal surveillance radar technology for deployment in the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV).
Bill Devlin, vice president of radar, reconnaissance and acoustic sensors business area at ITT stated that this proven coastal surveillance radar system is the outcome of over three years of intensive research work and that ITT will continue its large scale production with still enhanced effectiveness for Sweden’s defense purposes to safeguard the coastal areas.
The Reliability and Modification (REMO) 870 updation scheme is operated exploiting ITT’s novel LCR-2020 in-built surveillance radar system meant for the coastal areas. With the advent of this innovative radar technology, ITT is able to provide wide-range radar, control, command and transmission solution to its consumers. The enhanced security system generated by the in-built radar grid enables the users to identify and capture the invaders more efficiently, even in extreme coastal zones.
The manufacture of the radar tools will be fulfilled at ITT’s Van Nuys-based electronic systems business in Calif.
The major technologies implemented by ITT encompasses reconnaissance and surveillance systems for air and sea-based applications, in-built EW systems for a variety of aircraft, accurate landing and air traffic systems for military applications, under sea systems covering mine defense, naval command and sonar systems, acoustic sensors and force protection and counter-IED systems. ITT Electronic Systems also fabricates the electronic weapons interface systems, aircraft armament suspension and release equipment and advanced composite structures and subsystems.
