EMS Technologies to Provide Seeker Antenna for DARPA/U.S. Navy Missile Program UNITED STATES - 29 JUNE 2011 ATLANTA | EMS Defense & Space, a division of aero connectivity and mobile resource management leader, EMS Technologies, Inc., announced a contract with Lockheed Martin to develop a radio frequency seeker antenna for the U.S. Navyâ€™s Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM). The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control to complete the design and flight demonstration of two variants â€” LRASM A and B â€” of the missile. LRASM-B, the supersonic prototype, will enable very long-range, positive target identification and precision engagement of moving ships in the presence of advanced countermeasures and hostile active defense systems. â€œOur efforts are focused on enhancing the capabilities of the warfighter,â€ said Marion Van Fosson, Vice President and General Manager, EMS Defense & Space. â€œWith the increasing threat from hostile countries, our mission is to help equip the warfighter with the most advanced weaponry possible.â€ EMS is scheduled to deliver a prototype of the seeker antenna in Q3 2011. The company was able to leverage its extensive expertise with other high-speed missile programs to win its role on the LRASM-B program. The development of this antenna is a unique extension of EMS Defense & Spaceâ€™s best-in-class offering of low-profile, highly efficient antennas.
