The US Navy has exercised an option with Raytheon for long-lead work to support the production of two AN/SPY-6(V) radar configuration variants.

Raytheon will prepare to produce the SPY-6(V)2 Rotator Radar and the SPY-6(V)3 Fixed Face Radar under the contract modification, with work set to be complete by June 2020.

The AN/SPY-6(V) is the US Navy's next generation integrated air and missile defence radar, designed to provide protection against air, surface and ballistic missile threats.

The scalable radar is built with individual building blocks called Radar Modular Assemblies (RMAs). Each RMA is a self-contained radar in a 2’x2’x2’ box, which can stack together to form any size array to fit the mission requirements of any ship.
