Raven Industries’ subsidiary Aerostar Technical Solutions, Inc. (Raven Aerostar) has secured a subcontract with a value of $3.6 million to provide its Vista F25 radar systems to TCOM L.P. for the KSA Modified Persistent Surveillance Systems – Tethered (PSS-T) Large Systems in Saudi Arabia under a Foreign Military Sales program with the U.S. Army.

The company will provide its Vista F25 radar systems throughout a five-year period of performance with a work completion date of March 23, 2027. A subsequent task order award is anticipated to supply spares, integration support, reach-back support, training and sustainment.

Using advanced algorithms, Vista F25 radar systems provide early detection of defined targets and movement at long ranges. In addition to offering unprecedented range detection and tracking performance, these advanced systems provide extremely low false alarms, can be controlled remotely, and operate from a diverse set of platforms such as towers, vehicles, ships, unmanned aerial systems, and aerostats.

“Raven Aerostar’s advanced radar systems are designed to cut through the clutter, filtering out unwanted data, and focusing on tracks that matter so operators can prioritize their mission — often times in defense, security, intelligence and safety applications,” said Jim Nelson, Division Manager of Raven Aerostar. “International border security programs like these fulfill our mission to connect, protect and save lives around the globe.”

PSS-T supports military communications, force protection, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance activities. It is designed to collect information from multiple sensors and interoperate with other aerial and unattended ground radars.
