DHS Looks For Tool To Reduce Radar Interference From Wind Farms

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.
