During a ceremony at ADEX (Seoul International Aerospace & Defense Exhibition) on Oct. 18, 2023, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Huneed Technologies for the Korean company to produce a flat panel array for GA-ASI’s Lynx® and Eagle-Eye Multi-mode Radar systems. The Lynx radar is used on several models of GA-ASI’s line of Unmanned Aircraft Systems, including the MQ-9A Reaper and MQ-20 Avenger®, while Eagle-Eye is featured on MQ-1C Gray Eagle Extended Range (ER) and 25M models. Huneed’s flat panel array technology will be incorporated into a new common radar antenna subsystem for GA-ASI’s radar products.
Huneed Technologies, a global aerospace and defense company that specializing in tactical communication and avionics equipment, has been a long-time partner of GA-ASI. In 2022, Huneed was contracted to supply Circuit Card Assemblies for GA-ASI’s line of unmanned aircraft. Huneed signed its first MOU with GA-ASI in 2017, and in 2021 the MOU was renewed.
“Huneed is Korea's leading defense and aviation company with a long track record of establishing successful business relationships with a number of global OEMs in the aerospace industry. Huneed possesses advanced processes and production capabilities to join our global supply chain, and we appreciate Huneed’s long-term partnership,” said Jaime Walters, vice president of International Strategic Development at GA-ASI.
