Contract to Provide Motion Control System for Q-53 Radar Production

Trust Automation, Inc., known for custom actuation systems, motors, and controllers, today announced its fifth manufacturing contract for the rugged and high tech vehicle automation system they developed for the AN/TPQ-53 (Q-53) produced by Lockheed Martin. Q-53 is a Counterfire Target Acquisition Radar (CTAR) that provides soldiers with enhanced 360-degree protection from indirect fire.

The Q-53 is a new generation radar system with the flexibility to adapt to harsh environments and changing missions. In today's rapidly evolving security landscape of unconventional battlefields and irregular warfare, soldiers need to quickly locate and neutralize mortar and rocket threats. In a recent demonstration , the Q-53 radar showed it can be readily adapted to provide both air surveillance and Counter-Rocket, Artillery, Mortar (C-RAM) in one tactical sensor.
