COLMEK Begins NEW RF Conditioning Project for the NAVY’S ROTHR Program

Custom Engineering Effort will Significantly Enhance Performance and Expansion Capability
Nov. 1, 2011 - PRLog -- Salt Lake City, UT – Colmek today announced a $1M+ USD sub-contract award received from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) for engineering services and hardware development associated with the AN/TPS-71 Relocatable Over The Horizon RADAR (ROTHR) program.  

During this contract period Colmek will develop the core front-end signal conditioner.  In order to achieve a precise system specification Raytheon IDS has directed Colmek to produce engineered hardware not available off the shelf; the Utah based engineering firm responded to this need with a plan to meet the custom requirements and associated timelines.  

The Relocatable Over-the-Horizon RADAR (ROTHR) is a proven long range surveillance radar in service with the U.S. Government, deployed to detect and track aircraft and ship targets at ranges to 2,500 nautical miles.  

Jason Martin (Vice President of Engineering) for Colmek states, “My team is excited to apply our talents to this unique RADAR system, an effort which allows us to continue flexing our RF conditioning expertise.”
