Lockheed Martin's SSR gets US designation

15th November 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin's Solid State Radar (LM SSR) has been designated AN/SPY-7(V)1 by the US government, the company announced on 14 November.

The AN/SPY-7(V)1 has been selected by the Japanese Ministry of Defense for two planned Aegis Ashore installations in 2018. Variants will also be used by the Royal Canadian Navy for the Canadian Surface Combatant programme and the Spanish Navy for the upcoming F-110 frigate programme.

The modular and scalable solid state AN/SPY-7(V)1 radar allows for continuous surveillance and protection. It will be fully integrated with the Aegis Combat System, providing advanced technology for future ship classes.

Paul Lemmo, vice president and general manager at Lockheed Martin, said: ‘Lockheed Martin's solid state solution meets the mission now and is flexible to adapt to the evolving threats of the future. This new designation solidifies our ability to provide the most technically advanced capabilities our warfighters require.’
