AESA technology offers significant gains in reliability over
previous radar system technologies. Cobham's modular
sub-array T/R electronics architecture minimizes radar system
failures. A single element of module failure has minimal
effect on the operation of the system as a whole.
Applications include: Sense and Avoid (SAA), Detect and
Avoid (DAA), Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI),
Counter Rocket Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM), Synthetic Aperture
Radar (SAR) and electronic warfare (EW) systems.
