Defense Electronics Industry Review July 2011
International activity provided the largest contract awards for July with Thales and Dassault involved in a deal to upgrade India’s Mirage 2000 fighter aircraft fleet while the the UK signed a deal for three RC-135W Rivet Joint SIGINT aircraft. The increasing pace of AESA-based capability deployment was being demonstrating with Northrop Grumman's RQ-4B Block 40 Global Hawk completing its first full system flight with the high performance AN/ZPY-2. Raytheon was awarded a contract modification in support of the MK15 Phalanx Close-In-Weapon. While Harris dominated the communications sector with multiple contracts, NovelSat is looking to improve satellite bandwidth by up to 78%. On the processing side, Xilinx was targeting space-based applications with the availability of its radiation-hardened-by-design space-grade Virtex-5QV FPGA.
