Lockheed Martin to develop Sentinel A4 radar
Lockheed Martin will develop the Sentinel A4 radar system under a $281 million contract awarded by the US Army.
Sentinel A4 is a high-performance modification of the AN/MPQ-64A3 Sentinel A3 air and missile defence radar.
The development will provide updates to improve the existing Sentinel capability against cruise missiles, UAS, rotary wing and fixed wing threats, with improved surveillance, detection, and classification capabilities.
Rob Smith, vice president and general manager for Lockheed Martin's Radar and Sensor Systems, said: ‘By leveraging our open scalable radar architecture and production efforts, we believe we provide the lowest risk and best value solution for the US Army that will help protect our warfighters for years to come.’
