Raytheon falls out of JSTARS Recap programme

11th January 2018 - 14:00 GMT | by Alice Budge in London


Northrop Grumman is expected to be announced as the radar subcontractor for the US Air Force’s JSTARS Recap programme after the Government Accountability Office (GAO) dismissed three protest bids by Raytheon.

The GAO announced their dismissal of Raytheon’s protest attempts on December 28 before news of the Air Force’s down-selection for the programme was announced, however the details of the decision remains unavailable.

Raytheon had offered its Archimedes radar for the new Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS) fleet and claimed in 2017 that flight tests had demonstrated that Archimedes radar met or exceeded key JSTARS Recap requirements.
