TSC develops turnkey radar and fire control systems that enhance the performance of ground systems. Our radar and fire control systems leverage expertise in subsystem hardware and software. We have proven capabilities in areas such as Antennas, Exciters, Receivers, Transmitters, Digital Signal Processors, Arbitrary Waveform Generators, Missile Datalinks, Fire Control Algorithms, Enhanced Target Range and Classification, and much more. We provide support for integration and test activities to ensure success from the laboratory to the field.

Systems Engineering & Analysis

Systems Engineering

TSC provides full spectrum systems engineering support to our customers including theoretical analysis, requirements generation, test planning, test execution and test data reduction/analysis in both real-time and post-mission. System integration efforts consist of the introduction of newly developed hardware into existing systems as well as the integration of components to form new systems. We have been instrumental in the integration and test of radar and communications equipment for various Government and Industry customers. TSC offers SMEs and a long heritage in the development of requirements, system architecture design, formal verification or analysis for weapon systems. TSC performs these activities for fielded systems as well as new development efforts.

TSC’s Radar models include threat models, trajectories and tactical code simulation.

  • TSC’s Testable Component Environment (TCE) integrates tactical code onto a PC and models targets, weather, wind, sea clutter, debris, chaff, jamming, and land features
  • BMDS radar models supports multiple radar and EO/IR sensors
  • Full 3D scenario simulations show detections, hand-overs and intercepts
  • Radar detection and track timelines determined for each threat trajectory

RF Subsystems

RF Subsystems

TSC develops RF subsystems for many customers as well as for our own integrated Radar solutions. We develop all RF and digital subsystems necessary for radar systems including Antennas, Exciters, Receivers, Transmitters, Digital Signal Processors, Arbitrary Waveform Generators, and others.

TSC has a long history of developing custom antennas for our own systems or as products for our customers. We have the experienced staff and design and modeling tools to develop antennas for many applications including rugged designs that must operate in the most challenging military environments. Our facilities are equipped with fabrication and integration laboratories as well as an anechoic chamber. TSC can provide antenna design support, testing support or end-to-end solutions.

TSC Specializes in Phased Array Antenna Design including both passive and active electronically scanned arrays (AESA). Our AESA designs are scalable and leverage telecom T/R module technology to create low cost AESAs. We perform Antenna element design with proven capabilities at C, X, Ku, and Ka bands

Rapid Development & Mission Support

Rapid Development & Mission Support

TSC provides continued support for the Sentinel radar. TSC redesigned the Transmitter Control Unit (TCU) and Power amplifier module Interface Card (PIC). These subsystems have been integrated with the radar system. TSC's has manufactured these systems since 2003.

Test Sets and Threat Simulators

Test Sets and Threat Simulators

TSC has a long history of developing & delivering target Generation systems for various sensors:

  • More than two decades of supporting Sentinel with target generators, target injection units, and calibration systems
  • Supported radar technology for Tobyhanna with Live Fire Test Simulator (LFTS) since 2006
  • The LFTS Simulator has tested hundreds of TPQ-48, -49, and -50 LCMR radars

Calibration and Testing of Radar Systems Simulation of complete scenarios:

  • Targets (FW, Helo, UAV), Clutter (Distributed, Discrete), ECM (Deceptive, Denial)
  • Repeater electronics receive radar transmit signal, apply target amplitude and Doppler, and coordinate azimuth/elevation to simulate a realistic trajectory

FEATURED WORK

Active Protection Systems

Active Protection Systems

TSC developed the sensor, a phase interferometer, as well as the signal processor and fire control system for the Close-In Active Protection System installed on a Stryker Armored Combat Vehicle. The image captures the defeat mechanism, a blast fragmentation interceptor, as it punctures the thin skin of the incoming projectile to disable its warhead.

Radar Position Analysis System

Radar Position Analysis System (RPAS)

TSC’s Radar Position Analysis System (RPAS) is a software tool that simulates, analyzes and predicts the Site-Specific performance of a radar. It uses detailed radar models and digital terrain data to predict the radar scan, track and location performance. To date, TSC has integrated models for multiple fielded radars including AN/TPQ-36, 37 Firefinder radars.

TEMPR

Tactical Expeditionary Mobile Protection Radar (TEMPR)

TSC initiated an IR&D program to develop the Tactical Expeditionary Mobile Protection Radar (TEMPR):

  • Developed for Army ground vehicles
  • Designed to be Low-Cost, Lightweight, and Small
  • Multiple Modes

TSC has leveraged its modular, Software Defined Radar (SDR) designs and converted them to 3U Open VPX based architectures. TEMPR Combines 5G Telecom Technology, COTS Embedded Processing, and TSC’s FPGA-Based, Mixed-Signal RF Open VPX Cards.
