The Evolution of Aircraft Detection

In 1920, Lieutenant Thomas Winston stood watch on a coastal fortress, armed with little more than a rudimentary optical instrument. His keen eyes scanned the horizon for any sign of enemy aircraft, relying solely on human observation and experience.

With advanced radar systems and Laserdyne’s P102 laser rangefinder (or other diode pumped types), detecting and neutralizing threats up till 40km has become a matter of precision and speed. From the simplicity of observation to the sophistication of technology, the quest for aerial superiority continues unabated.

The Next Generation Weapon System (NGWS). In this New Generation Fighters will work together with Unmanned Remote Carriers – all connected to other systems in space, in the air, on the ground, at sea and in cyberspace via a data cloud called the “Combat Cloud.” We are looking forward to it!
