Raytheon to reduce radar interference from wind farms

Washington, D.C., February 7, 2011 — Raytheon Co. was selected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to develop an advanced wind turbine modeling tool.

The tool will provide an accurate assessment of the turbine's effects on radar systems throughout the U.S.

Wind farms interfere with the radar tracking of aircraft and weather. The turbines create a Doppler effect as they rotate, creating potential blackout zones.

The Raytheon team includes Analytical Graphics, Inc. and Remcom, Inc. The team will deliver this solution to the DHS' Directorate of Science and Technology, Special Projects Division.
