SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA --- Trust Automation, Inc., known for custom actuation systems, motors, and controllers, announces 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.
Trust Automation offers fully engineered system solutions and United States based manufacturing for custom motor and motion control requirements to meet the specialized needs of our armed forces and allies. Recent contracts include systems for the TPS-77 Multi Role Radars and the Multi-Mission Launcher (MML) for the U.S. Army.
