Enables Operators to Track and Identify Surface Radars
General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA ASI) and Leonardo have integrated the latter’s SAGE 750 Electronic Support Measure (ESM) system onto the MQ-9B SeaGuardian UAS.
The SAGE 750 installed on SeaGuardian will provide intelligence information on maritime and terrestrial radar emitters over a wide area.
“This will be the first time that our aircraft has featured a fully-integrated, tactical ESM capability,” said Linden Blue, CEO, GA-ASI. “SAGE ESM will improve our customer’s ability to make tactical decisions and allow collection of ISR data on selected emitters.”
“SAGE is a product of Leonardo’s decades of heritage in providing world-class electronic intelligence equipment,” said Mark Hamilton, SVP Electronic Warfare, Leonardo. “We’re proud that our SAGE ESM will be the off-the-shelf option for the SeaGuardian, providing a unique level of situational awareness to operators. We value our close partnership with GA-ASI and are pleased to be supporting the MQ-9B platform with our portfolio of advanced sensors.”
