C Speed has completed its research effort to explore integration techniques for the LightWave Radar with the Travis AFB Raytheon ASR-11 Digital Airport Surveillance Radar (DASR). Integration of the two radar sources successfully demonstrated improvement to the air picture when non-transmitting targets encroach on the extensive Wind Resource Area. Travis AFB is adjacent to more than 600 wind turbines that have impacted the air picture by interfering with the existing DASR system. C Speed’s efforts were made in collaboration with Travis AFB via a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) that commenced in 2013. USTRANSCOM signed the CRADA on behalf of its Air Force Transportation Component Command, Air Mobility Command, the parent command of Travis Air Force Base (AFB).

RENEWABLEUK HAS ANNOUNCED C SPEED'S LIGHTWAVE RADAR AS SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2014 BREAKTHROUGH AWARD
London, UK - C Speed's LightWave Radar wind turbine clutter mitigation radar system is one of three entries to be shortlisted for the renewable 'Breakthrough of the Year' award to be presented at the RenewableUK 2014 Gala Dinner event to be held November 12, 2014. A LightWave Radar system that mitigates the clutter generated by wind turbines, was purchased and successfully installed at Kent’s International Airport Manston. By mitigating the clutter, the system solves the issue that causes airports to object to the construction of wind farms. Thus C Speed broke through to the renewables industry and forever transformed the wind developer’s ability to build near airports. Today, in 2014, LightWave Radar remains the first and only radar to be purchased in the UK for clutter mitigation that does not require terrain screening.
RenewableUK is the UK's leading not for profit renewable energy trade association. Their vision is for renewable energy to play a leading role in powering the UK.

REP. OWENS ANNOUNCES CLARKSON UNIVERSITY and C SPEED, LLC ALLIANCE
Potsdam, New York - Last week in Washington, Congressman Bill Owens congratulated Clarkson University and C Speed, LLC (Liverpool, NY), a high technology engineering and manufacturing company, for their new partnership that leverages the strengths of C Speed's high tech product development and manufacturing operations with Clarkson's resources in advanced materials processing, aerodynamics and renewable energy. Together, the two organizations will establish a technical center in Peyton Hall on Clarkson's Village Campus.
C Speed is area leader in hiring more interns/grads from the CASE program at SU than any other company since CASE's inception.
C Speed LLC won't reverse the tide of lost manufacturing jobs by itself, but the high-tech company in Salina has growth plans.
The company is based at 316 Commerce Blvd., in Salina, but C Speed recently opened a new 11,000-square-foot manufacturing facility about a mile away at 4465 Steelway Blvd., Clay. There it plans to increase production of so-called "black box" devices it designs and produces for military contractors, electronics manufacturers and others.
In 1981, 17-year-old Lysack left his family’s Orange County, N.Y., onion farm to study electrical engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology. From there he joined GE in Syracuse, then SRC while attending SU for a master’s degree in computer engineering. He started his own electronics company in Liverpool, Perigee. He and his business partner, Justin Louise, then started a second company, C Speed, its name referring to the speed of light, where they have 35 employees, most of them engineers.
OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO CNY
C Speed, LLC received the ‘2010 Technology Company of the Year’ from the Technology Alliance of Central New York at its annual awards banquet that was held on September 20, 2010 in Syracuse. To be recognized in this way is especially meaningful to its growing team as recent award winners have included Bristol-Myers Squibb, Lockheed Martin, and Welch-Allyn.
The Technology Alliance of Central New York exists to enhance and facilitate the development, growth, and advancement of education, awareness and historical appreciation of technology within the Central New York Community. Through its programs and support efforts, the Technology Alliance seeks to further serve members, as well as educational groups and institutions with similar missions, and be the key link among technical societies in Central New York.
The International Wind and Radar Forum will provide an exclusive opportunity for government and industry stakeholders from Europe and North America to openly share their ideas and experiences regarding the interaction of wind turbines and radar equipment. The forum will also enable discussion of the impact of wind turbines on military testing and training operations. One of the confirmed speakers is David A. Lysack, President, C Speed, LLC.
