Commenting on the sale, Daronmont Chief Executive Ben Norris said,
“As pioneers in the development of Passive Radar, we have invested heavily in the development of our Stealth Passive Radar system over several years.
It is therefore very pleasing to see our US customer demonstrating its support for our product by placing this order.
As US Agencies employ the system and determine wider uses for the technology, we expect there will be many more orders”.
Daronmont has now delivered 12 units and expects increased deliveries over the coming year.
Passive Radar provides the capability to detect without being detected. It uses reflections from third party transmission sources to detect sea, land and air targets.
As it doesn’t emit a signal, the radar cannot be easily detected and targeted. With no moving parts it is easy to maintain and needs no licence to use. (See video at https://daronmont.com.au/produ...)
Daronmont worked closely with the Australian Defence Science and Technology Group to commercialise passive radar technology and continues to innovate and develop this world leading capability.
In 2017 Daronmont won an AUD$7.9m investment from the Australian Defence Innovation Hub (DIH) to develop a portable passive radar for the Australian Defence Forces and which it successfully demonstrated in 2020.
The system is very adaptable and recent trials have proven that despite its low SWaP the technology can detect targets over increasingly longer ranges.
