TSC has decades of experience in designing, building, testing, and deploying Airborne Sensors for ISR Mission Support. We support RF sensor employment from System Requirements Analysis, to Hardware/Software/Firmware Prototype Development, to Low-Rate Initial Production, to Deployment and Mission Support.


System Eng and Analysis

Systems Engineering & Analysis

TSC has experience performing Systems Engineering and Analysis on virtually every type of radar. From ground-based air-defense, to airborne SAR / MTI / Fire-Control, to Space – We do it. We have particular expertise in the areas of:

Our Core Competencies in RF Sensors:

  • Phased Array Analysis
  • Missile Seeker Analysis
  • Proximity Fuze Analysis
  • Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Analysis
  • Moving Target Indicator (MTI) radar Analysis

RF Sensors and Defense Electronics

RF Sensors & Defense Electronics

TSC has been designing and building highly-advanced, turn-key RF sensors since the 1980s. From requirements analysis and simulation, to RF and digital circuit and antenna design, to Low-Rate Initial Production – We do it. TSC is an ISO 9001-2008 certified design and production house, with an extensive track record of delivering success on challenging DoD requirements.

  • Software-Defined Radar (SDR) Back-end Designs
  • Low-Cost Airborne Sensors (including Airborne Sense-and-Avoid radars for UAS)
  • Modular Open System Architecture Designs (OpenVPX)
  • RF Missile Seekers (Active and Passive)
  • RF Proximity Sensors for Weapon Fuzing Applications
  • Phased Arrays (Active and Passive)

Rapid Development and Mission Support

Rapid Development & Mission Support

TSC supports multiple Air-Force, Army, and NAVY UAS initiatives ranging from new UAS design and payload development to OCONUS operations. Our programs address urgent operational needs, such as ISR, Counter-IED, Counter-Insurgency, Counter-UAS, Electronic Warfare and Precision Strike. We have extensive experience with coordinating overseas operations, including logistics and staffing for foreign deployments. We support UAS flight testing at multiple government test ranges.


Featured Work

Holographic SAR

Holographic SAR

TSC has developed Holographic SAR algorithms for multiple airborne SAR platforms. Holographic SAR is a 3-D tomographic backprojection image formation technique with associated change detection algorithms. The technique achieves superior target resolution in the vertical dimension.



TCAR is an X-band, software-defined radar designed to function as a low-cost data collection platform for Airborne ISR applications, such as SAR and MTI. It has a 4-channel RF receiver with an arbitrary waveform generator for signal generation. TCAR is currently being used to test new waveforms for ISR and C-UAS applications.

Sea Dragon

Sea Dragon

Sea Dragon is an Airborne Multi-INT surveillance platform designed to demonstrate a paradigm shift in low-cost Broad-area Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA). The demonstration platform carries an X-band SAR, AIS receiver, EO/IR camera gimbal, and satellite data modem.
