Curtiss Wright Corporation
: 29 April, 2009  (New Product)
Curtiss-Wright Controls, Inc., has received a contract from a U.S. Army agency to supply ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology for use in the detection of unexploded ordnances in overseas operations.
Under the terms of the agreement, Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing's 3d-Radar group will provide its innovative step frequency B3231 antenna and GeoScope GPR processing solutions to the military.

'Curtiss-Wright Controls is proud to provide our ground penetrating radar technology for use by the U.S. Army,' said David Adams, co-chief operating officer of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. 'This is truly ground-breaking news in more ways than one, and marks a milestone for 3d-Radar since its technology is especially well suited for the detection of buried objects such as unexploded ordnances.'

In addition to its unique GPR technology, Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing's 3d-Radar also provided enhancements to its product to address specific requirements of the US Army. One such enhancement is the optional real-time view incorporated into the GeoScope that enables operators to view post-processed GPR data within milliseconds of the initial capture. The real-time view has been integrated with detection algorithms developed by Exponent, Inc. Shipments of the GPR systems began in March 2009. The contract's duration is expected to span twelve months.
