Multi-Mission Capabilities

The system's flexibility enables you to meet widely varying mission requirements ranging from foliage penetration to long-range maritime domain awareness, or long-range moving target detection, using common hardware and software.

Excellence at Work

In operational use with the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy, KeyRadar systems have deployed to CENTCOM, INDO-PACOM, NORTHCOM and SOUTHCOM.

The modular system also permits low-cost system upgrades and sustainment. New components are a natural evolution that won’t require system redesign or cause proprietary technology constraints. The flexible architecture significantly reduces lifecycle costs and total cost of ownership.

KeyRadar includes all peripherals required: mission planning software, command and control GUI, calibration and quality assessment tools.
