Raytheon has completed technical testing during the US Army's Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) sense-off at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, the company announced on 21 May.

The two-week missile defence demonstration highlighted Raytheon's readiness to deliver mission-critical LTAMDS capability to the US Army.

During the sense-off, Raytheon's LTAMDS solution demonstrated the key mission capabilities; validated the maturity of the LTAMDS design; acquired and tracked a variety of threat-representative targets; and showcased ease of maintenance and sustainment.

During the next phase of the competition, Raytheon will develop and deliver a final proposal addressing the army's key evaluation criteria.

Tom Laliberty, VP of integrated air and missile defense at Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business, said: ‘Raytheon's clean-sheet approach and decades-long investments in gallium nitride technology allowed us to demonstrate and deliver a mature solution that will meet the army's initial operational capability.’
