Raytheon Team To Develop System To Assess Actual Effects
DHS has selected Raytheon Company to develop an advanced wind
turbine modeling tool. The tool will provide an accurate assessment
of the turbine's effects on radar systems throughout the U.S.
Wind farms interfere with the radar tracking of aircraft and
weather. The turbines create a Doppler effect as they rotate,
creating potential blackout zones.
"Raytheon's 60-year legacy in the design and manufacture of
radar systems strongly qualifies us to provide an innovative
solution to the problem," said Andy Zogg, Raytheon Network Centric
Systems vice president of Command and Control Systems. "With the
introduction of our highly reliable tool, DHS will be able to
better manage approvals of wind farm applications, allowing for
clean and renewable wind energy resources."
The Raytheon team includes Analytical Graphics, Inc. and Remcom,
Inc. The team will deliver this solution to the DHS' Directorate of
Science and Technology, Special Projects Division.
