With a legacy of over 50 years, Riverside Research’s Radar Assessment and Development (RAD) Group continues to lead the way in radar technology and systems. Our RAD Group supports the development, sustainment, modernization, and operation of a world-class portfolio of the most advanced radar systems ever deployed for Advanced Missile Technical Collection, Missile Defense, and Space Domain Awareness missions.
From our lab in Lexington, MA, to the radar sites around the world, our nationally recognized subject matter experts provide support across all facets of the programs including advanced radar systems engineering, mission performance analysis, sustainment/modernization, mission planning, lifecycle logistics, software validation, and budget/finance support.
Using a suite of tailored radar analysis tools, we perform rapid performance evaluations at mission-speed of virtually every real-world data collection event of any type. Our team conducts forensic analysis of any anomalies uncovered and helps resolve the anomalies to continually improve mission performance.
Our engineers perform source code analysis to identify and resolve deficiencies, prototype algorithms, and conduct studies. We lead formal software test events, design reviews, and peer reviews. In addition to in-plant test support, we conduct independent verification of test artifacts.
Our engineers employ a robust library of in-house developed radar data analysis tools that provide rapid troubleshooting of technical system issues including detailed post-event forensic analysis of collection events. These tools operate on customer networks at appropriate security levels and are equipped to handle and process data with virtually any handling and releasability restrictions. We also have tools that support lifecycle logistics monitoring to predict sustainment costs and risks.Our Tools
Among the RAD Group’s most enduring and ubiquitous technical expertise is radar system acquisition and upgrades. This includes major system modernization efforts. Our team conducts requirements analyses of these efforts, develops system performance specifications, and assists the government in overseeing all development and test activities. We ensure that prime development contractors deliver what's required, do not misinterpret requirements, and do not compromise system capabilities that present long-term operational risks in the field.
