Exelis Adds Night Capability to CorvusEye Wide Area Airborne Surveillance System

Exelis announced CorvusEye(TM) 1,500 visible color and infrared (IR) sensor provides day and nighttime wide area airborne surveillance coverage to support the military, law enforcement, border patrol and first responders. Developed to complement the daytime electro-optical sensor Exelis, the sensors are available as an integrated end-to-end system or separately. The new CorvusEye 1500CM system complements traditional video surveillance systems and captures high-resolution, visible color and IR motion imagery during the day and night over a wide area up to 2 kilometers (1.24 miles) in diameter. The CorvusEye system can track movement that may be connected to potentially hazardous or illicit activity, as well as other trends like migratory or invasive wildlife behavior. CorvusEye is an example of a product Exelis offers as part of its strategic focus on intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and analytics. CorvusEye can capture activity occurring simultaneously in multiple areas that might go unnoticed using traditional surveillance such as full-motion video. At 15 inches in diameter and weighing less than 95 pounds, CorvusEye can fit on most mid-size unmanned and manned aircraft and uses standard interfaces to swap into virtually any 15-inch airframe mounting location. CorvusEye is exportable to many military, intelligence and security customers around the world. A single CorvusEye sensor can serve up to 10 different area views simultaneously providing close-up details with streaming footage. The system can also quickly gather critical intelligence in support of investigations using archived footage. As an end-to-end system, CorvusEye can be used on manned and unmanned platforms and offers ground station software for live data streaming to mobile devices.

Exelis Wins Task Order from the U.S. Army Contracting Command

The U.S. Army Contracting Command has awarded Exelis a task order to deliver a limited quantity of SideHat SRW (Solidier Radio Waveform) Applique radios for evaluation. SideHat provides a critical networking capability specifically developed for the vehicular electromagnetic and physical environment experienced on the battlefield. The task order was from an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract awarded to the company in April for the specific purpose of providing SRW applique radios. This testing is expected to enable the U.S military to obtain the required Material Release for SRW applique fielding. The Exelis SideHat will host SRW, a waveform developed by Exelis that operates in the UHF and L-Band frequency ranges and provides an affordable second channel solution to Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio Systems (SINCGARS) vehicular radio installations. SideHat was also designed for easy integration and common user interfaces with the widely fielded SINCGARS radio, the primary tactical communications backbone manufactured by Exelis for the Army. SINCGARS with SideHat and SRW delivers a system solution with up to four channels (two SRW and two VHF). It enables dismounted soldiers to communicate with both voice and data to mounted soldiers in vehicles within a larger network.
