Raytheon to Integrate Army’s Missile Defense Radars Into Advanced Distributed Radar Concept

RTX business Raytheon has secured a U.S. Army contract to include enhancements to the Advanced Distributed Radar concept.

Raytheon’s Advanced Technology team will develop the software required to integrate multiple Lower Tier Air & Missile Defense Sensor radars into the ADR. The enhancements are designed to expand the protection of maneuver forces and critical assets.

ADR was originally developed to replace the U.S. Navy’s AN/SPY-6(V) family of radars to support maritime operations. The LTAMDS addition will expand ADR’s usability and support the Army’s threat mitigation missions, RTX said.

LTAMDS is a 360-degree multi-mission sensor designed to work with the Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense architecture. The radar, designed to work with the Patriot interceptor system, enables tactical ballistic missile, aircraft and cruise missile detection using C-, X- and S-band communications and has an effective range of over 100 kilometers.

The Army contract builds on other contracts Raytheon secured in October supporting U.S. military objectives.

Earlier in October, Raytheon secured a $39 million U.S. Air Force contract to develop the service’s Battle Management Command and Control software and a missile defense system prototype. The BMC2 prototype will be integrated into the defense system, designed to protect U.S. bases from airborne threats.
