TDS support a number of industries including: Defence, Space, Security, Electronic Warfare (EW), Radar and Communications.

Our business is focused on the design and manufacture of niche components, sub systems and systems which include:

  • Radar Warning Receivers (RWR)
  • ELINT & ESM Receivers
  • Multi-Function Assemblies including DIFM, DLVA, Channelisers, Converters, Synthesisers & Switched Multiplexers
  • Filters including Bandpass, Suspended Substrate Stripline, Tunable, Combline & Multiplexers


Radar Warning Receiver (RWR)


The Phobos Threat Warner/RESM provides a low cost, compact and lightweight system with full capability for Air, Land and Naval applications. Designed to meet demanding UAV and Aerostat SWaP-C requirements, without compromising sensor or platform performance, it opens up an entirely new range of applications for UAV RWR/ESM payloads.
It can also be used as a standalone sub-system ready to be linked to any other software.

With minimal connections Phobos is quick to deploy, can be remotely operated, and requires no ground infrastructure making it fast and user friendly in the field.



High Performance Filters


We provide complete front end filter solutions including lumped element, machine combline and tunable filters; specialising in custom, passive and digital high performance filters to meet demanding customer requirements, along with cavity designs to deliver the optimal filter based integrated assemblies.

Our filters provide low loss and high selectivity and unique to Teledyne, our advanced switch filters are giving our customers the extra edge in technology and the optimum high frequencies required.

Our advanced products include the CB503 Tuneable High-Q Filter, High Power VHF/UHF Bandpass Filter; S-Band & X-Band Fast Tuned Notch Filters.



Digitising Receivers


Our high performance receivers provide a new approach for ESM/ELINT applications. Using advanced patented features they offer wide band synthesised capability from 500MHz to 18GHz with frequency extensions available up to 40GHz.

A range from single through to quad channel receivers enables full band coverage, couple this with a fast tune speed and Teledyne’s Receivers provide the perfect solution for users who need on demand information in the field.

Utilising the plug-and-play concept, the Receivers are designed to improve system performance, yet keeping a price sensitive approach.



Instantaneous Frequency Measurement Unit (IFM)


With an RF signal in the range of 0.5 to 18 GHz, our state of the art IFM’s are perfectly suited for Electronic Support Measures (ESM), Jammer Power Management and SIGINT equipment applications.

This enables users to intercept radar coverage rapidly in all terrain.

We manufacture both analogue and digital IFMs with extra functionality, allowing users to get the best products to suit their requirements whether that is the cost effective appeal of digital IFMs or the familiarity of analogue IFMs which are compatible with the majority of systems and platforms.



Space Capabilities


Teledyne Defence & Space specialises in integrated frequency conversion and filter products for satellite payloads and has been selected to supply Flexible Channelisers to OneWeb for its satellite payload system designed to provide low earth orbit broadband internet access worldwide.
