C4ISR Journal award for Lynx SAR

General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc : 21 October, 2009  (New Product)
The Lynx Block 30 Synthetic Aperture Radar sensor system from GA-ASI has reached the finals of the C4ISR Journal Big 25 Award
General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA?ASI), a manufacturer of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), tactical reconnaissance radars, and surveillance systems, has announced the receipt of two awards from C4ISR Journal, the publication of record for the global network-centric warfare community, for GA-ASI’s Lynx Block 30 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)/Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) sensor system and Highlighter manned aerial electro-optical sensor.

In an awards ceremony held October 19 in Arlington, Va., GA-ASI was twice recognized as a finalist in C4ISR Journal’s “Big 25” Awards, a Defence industry awards program that honours C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) programs, technologies, and organizations that are making a difference on the battlefield or in the defence of civilians against terrorists and insurgents. The company was nominated in the “Sensors” category, which includes devices that gather data that is turned into intelligence, for making a significant difference in the battle zone by deterring enemies and/or gathering intelligence.

GA-ASI’s Lynx Block 30 SAR/GMTI radar, a reduced weight/volume version of the Lynx Block 20 system, was recognized for providing the Iraqi Air Force and US Army with the all-weather, wide-area precision search capability to detect time-sensitive targets from both manned and unmanned aircraft platforms. In addition, the company’s Highlighter electro-optical sensor was acknowledged for providing change detection and high-resolution imagery to US Forces deployed in support of counter insurgency and counter-improvised explosive device (IED) efforts.
