UTC Aerospace Systems and Selex ES announced they will jointly develop the TacSAR (tactical synthetic aperture radar) reconnaissance system, a long-range SAR system designed for overland and maritime reconnaissance and surveillance. TacSAR uses Selex active electronically scanned array radar technology.

More than a dozen countries employ UTC Aerospace Systems’ DB-110 EO/IR reconnaissance pod, which can be fitted on tactical jets, maritime patrol aircraft and business jets. Current DB-110 EO/IR users will be able to integrate the TacSAR pod using the same aircraft interfaces, real-time data links and intelligence exploitation systems, UTC said.

UTC Aerospace Systems (Hall 3 Stand AS6-17) is part of United Technologies Corp. Selex ES (Outdoor Exhibit 1) is a Finmeccanica company.
