SprayCool, a provider of advanced thermal management solutions, has been selected by SRC Computers, to provide the critical processor chassis for the US Army’s Tactical Reconnaissance and Counter-Concealment Enabled Radar.
The Tactical Reconnaissance and Counter-Concealment Enabled Radar (TRACER) program will address a critical need to identify hidden targets, facilities and enemy equipment such as small roadside targets and buried weapons caches. The system’s design is predicated on Lockheed Martin’s foliage penetration technology, which was developed to detect vehicles, buildings, and large metallic objects in broad areas of dense foliage, forested areas and wooded terrain.
The new system will provide images to ground units in all-weather, day or night conditions and incorporate a data link that will allow processed results to be immediately down-linked to ground stations. As part of the program, SprayCool will provide SRC Computers with the signal data processor chassis, one of the primary components of Lockheed Martin’s synthetic aperture radar.
Matt Gerber, president and CEO of SprayCool, said: This is the second contract we have been awarded in support of the Army’s TRACER program, and it demonstrates that our approach to electronics thermal management provides a great value for our customers, especially in terms of system-level size, weight and power savings. We are excited about the opportunity to work with SRC Computers because it bolsters our multi-year relationship of combining each others product offerings.
