Sierra Nevada Corporation’s (SNC) Multi Sensor Detect Sense and Avoid Completes Successful Airborne Demonstration
SNC's Sense And Avoid sensor was able to detect and track aerial enemy intruders.
The advanced sensor used a prototype, x-band radar sensor developed exclusively by Sierra Nevada Corporation. The speed of the Sense and Avoid Sensor allowed for more than 60 seconds of avoidance time by the aircraft in the flight demonstration. The company believes that their advanced sensor is a cost efficient, breakthrough technology that is easy to scale, making it superior to current electronically-navigated antennas. SNC is the top woman-owned federal contractor in the US, and the company utilizes multiple emerging technologies in their R&D and commercialization activities, including renewable energy, nanotechnology, and microsatellites.
