Raytheon advances in US Army’s LTAMDS competition
Raytheon has been selected to advance in the US Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) competition, the company announced on 8 October.
The company will now enter the Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction (TMRR) phase of the programme. Here, Raytheon will demonstrate LTAMDS performance through multiple technology demonstrations, using a fully operational array and later an integrated radar prototype, to prove the maturity of its design.
As the LTAMDS programme progresses, Raytheon will develop key prototyping that reduces risk and further matures the technology; deliver detailed designs that prove capability and production readiness; and also deliver a support plan to the army's testing for mobility and sustainability.
Tom Laliberty, VP of integrated air and missile defense at Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business, said: ‘Our expertise in the lower tier air and missile defence domain, combined with our Gallium Nitride based sensor technology, allows us to offer the US Army the radar they need, when they need it.’
LTAMDS is a net centric radar that will form part of the army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense enterprise, controlled by the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System.
