Abstract
General Atomics, ASI has emerged as a leading purveyor of size limited airborne radars for remotely piloted vehicles (RPV). The Lynx B20A is a multi-modal system that includes SAR, video SAR, dismount MTI, and Maritime Wide Area Search (MWAS). GA-ASI is also developing the Due Regard Radar (DRR) for the Predator® B that provides the remote pilot with situational awareness of approaching aircraft over a field of view similar to that of an onboard pilot. GA-ASI hopes to significantly expand the role of RPVs for military and civilian use in the coming decades. Radar will be the lynchpin to achieving this goal.
