imaging radar technology, announced a new Series B strategic investment by
RTX Ventures, the venture capital arm of Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX).
The funding will help NPS develop next-generation radar technology able to
provide 10 times better resolution and 2.5 times greater range for mobility
and defense applications.
Radar is used across diverse industries, from automotive and mobility to
aerospace and defense, with a total available market of $28 billion
projected in 2025, according to Yole Group. Each of these use cases will
benefit from increased scanning speed, resolution, reliability and range.
Defense radars, in particular, require ever-greater resolution to deal with
