PAR system completed acceptance tests for Brazilian Air Force


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
ITT Corporation
: 06 August, 2009  (New Product)
ITT Corporation has announced that the Brazil PAR-2000 modernization team successfully completed Site Acceptance Testing (SAT). This is the first of four radar systems to be upgraded for the Brazilian Air Force.
The four days of site acceptance testing included logistic and quality inspections, system online and offline checks, and flight certification. Grupo Especial de Inspeção em Vôo (GEIV), the Brazilian special flight inspection group, performed the flight certification.

The Brazilian Air force uses ITT’s Precision Approach Radars (PARs) to ensure safe landings of aircraft in all conditions, especially where visibility is impaired; including night and severe weather landings. ITT’s PAR-2000 radar system successfully tracked and landed the GEIV’s test aircraft under severe weather conditions during the SAT.

'ITT’s ability to deliver further capabilities on these systems supports the strong working relationship with the Brazilian Ministry of Defense,” said ITT Electronic Systems President Chris Bernhardt. “The ongoing success of our PAR-2000 testing reinforces the longevity and durability of the systems.”

ITT Radar Systems-Gilfillan originally sold four fixed PAR systems to Brazil in 1997. Last year, ITT was awarded a contract to upgrade these original systems; work commenced in 2008 and will conclude about five years later.

ITT Electronic Systems is one of the world’s leading suppliers of Electronic warfare technology for mission success and survivability. Key technologies include integrated EW systems for self-protection, reconnaissance and surveillance, force protection, mine defense, naval command/sonar applications, and submarine communication and tracking. In addition, Electronic Systems produces aircraft armament suspension/release equipment; electronic weapons interface systems, and advanced composite structures and subsystems, as well as Gilfillan precision landing and air traffic systems.
