GEELONG, Australia—BAE Systems is supplying a high-frequency (HF) radio sensor to the U.S. government using technology originally developed for Australia’s Jindalee over-the-horizon radars.
The U.S. sensor is passive, meaning it is not a radar, but BAE will not further describe it nor name the specific customer.
Some of the know-how has come from the Defense Science and Technology Group (DSTG), the government home of much of Australia’s HF radio technology.
“The technology exported to the U.S. was jointly developed by BAE and DSTG in 2001, with BAE continuing to independently invest in research and development to develop an export product which is now in its fourth generation,” says BAE’s Steve Wynd, whose main responsibility is Jindalee work.
