Applications in Radio Frequency, Electro-Optics and Infrared (RF/EO/IR) R&D

Advancements in computerized technology have enabled systems handling communications, radar, electronic warfare and more to become multifunctional, with user programmable or automatically programmable computers replacing multiple, individual components designed for one specific purpose.

Radar systems, radios, direction finding and jamming devices are being replaced by multifunctional computers that can perform all the required operations within a single system.

Examples include multiple access panels in aircraft cockpits that have been replaced by a single computerized system and unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) that rely on advanced technologies operating on the smallest devices.

The BerrieHill Research Division of ARA has been at the forefront of much of the research and development in applications that advance radio frequency, electro-optics and infrared (RF/EO/IR) technology to make systems more efficient and multifunctional.

Application Development

BerrieHill Research Division of ARA's RF/EO/IR work enables the technological advancement of complex systems used in a variety of military, defense and commercial applications, including:

Like the Internet, which originated in the research and development of ARPANET during the 1960s and 70s by the U.S. Dept. of Defense, the work that ARA’s BerrieHill Research Division performs not only serves a vital role in supporting our military operations, it also has applicability in commercial environments, particularly in the areas of communications and cybersecurity.
