First LRDR reaches milestone

8th August 2019 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Missile Defense Agency's (MDA's) Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) is coming together, with the first radar panel delivered to Clear, Alaska and the final beam placed on the radar shelter.

The new radar is set to serve as a critical sensor within the MDA's layered defence of the US against ballistic missile attacks from 2020. 

The programme completed System Technology Readiness Level 7 testing in December 2018, clearing the way for Lockheed Martin and the MDA to ramp up to full-rate production manufacturing.

The LRDR combines proven solid state radar technologies with proven ballistic missile defence algorithms, all based upon an open architecture platform capable of meeting future growth.
