GA-ASI Introduces New EagleEye Radar

New Radar Flies on U.S. Army Gray Eagle UAS; Features New Video SAR Capability

SAN DIEGO – 05 April 2022 – General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI), a leader in Multi-mode Radar technology for Unmanned Aircraft Systems, introduces the EagleEye radar. The new MMR is installed and has flown on a U.S. Army-operated Gray Eagle Extended Range (GE-ER) UAS. EagleEye joins GA-ASI’s line of radar products, which includes the Lynx® MMR.

EagleEye is a high-performance radar system that delivers high-resolution, photographic-quality imagery that can be captured through clouds, rain, dust, smoke and fog at multiple times the range of previous radars. It’s a “drop-in solution” for Gray Eagle ER and is designed to meet the range and accuracy to Detect, Identify, Locate & Report (DILR) stationary and moving targets relevant for Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) with Enhanced Range Cannon Artillery (ERCA). EagleEye radar can deliver precision air-to-surface targeting accuracy and superb wide-area search capabilities in support of Long-Range Precision Fires.

Featuring Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Ground/Dismount Moving Target Indicator (GMTI/DMTI), and robust Maritime Wide Area Search (MWAS) modes, EagleEye’s search modes provide the wide-area coverage for any integrated sensor suite, allowing for cross-cue to a narrow Field-of-View (FOV) Electro-optical/Infrared (EO/IR) sensor.

The EagleEye’s first flight on the Army GE-ER aircraft took place in December, incorporating the new Video SAR capability. Video SAR enables continuous collection and processing of radar data, allowing persistent observation of targets day or night and during inclement weather or atmospheric conditions. In addition, EagleEye’s processing techniques enables three modes – SAR Shadow Moving Detection, SAR Stationary Vehicle Detection and Moving Vehicle Detection as part of its Moving Target Indicator – to operate simultaneously.  

“The Video SAR in EagleEye provides all-weather tracking and revolutionizes precision targeting of both moving and stationary targets at the same time,” said GA-ASI Vice President of Army Programs Don Cattell. “This is a critical capability in an MDO environment to ensure military aviation, ground force and artillery have constant situational awareness and targeting of enemy combatants.”
