EDO Receives Contract for Navy Antennas.
This receive-only CA-3138-1 antenna was developed in cooperation with the U.S. Navy Radio Frequency and Antenna Branch at Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, Calif. It is to be utilized on a number of Navy ships, including the Arleigh Burke (DDG 51) class destroyers.
"EDO continues to be a leader in developing state-of-the-art electronic self-defense systems," said Chief Executive Officer James M. Smith. "Our omni-directional antenna detects signals that are then processed by the ship's electronic surveillance and measurement system to determine if they are from hostile sources. Such situational awareness of the source and direction of a threat enables the commanding officer to quickly react with an appropriate defensive response."
