Lockheed has delivered three prototype threat warning systems to the US Navy for testing under the joint and allied threat awareness system (JATAS) technology demonstration programme.

The prototype system is designed to protect aircraft pilots and aircrews in hostile environments that include hostile fire from the ground, surface-to-air missiles, man-portable air defence systems and laser guided threats.

The system consists of a laser warning sensor, a missile warning sensor and an open architecture processor to process sensor data and provide threat declaration.

Under the six-week, government-run test activity, flight tests will be conducted on a UH-60 Black Hawk and will also include static, live-fire and laboratory tests.

The US NAVAIR and Naval Research Laboratory will also evaluate the performance of the system using Lockheed’s digital system model.
