Raytheon, Lockheed Martin to pursue SENSR

4th April 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon and Lockheed Martin have signed an agreement to jointly pursue a contract to consolidate and modernise US surveillance and air traffic control radar systems, Raytheon announced on 1 April.

The Spectrum Efficient National Surveillance Radar (SENSR) contract is a multi-agency programme that includes the US Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.

SENSR will replace current air traffic control and surveillance radars with fewer, more advanced multi-mission systems and release wireless spectrum for commercial use.

The consolidation effort will free up a large amount of bandwidth that can be used to move the US toward a 5G capability.

Ralph Acaba, president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, said: ‘There's an increasing demand for radio spectrum that's driving the rapid expansion of wireless internet services across America. SENSR will revolutionise our airspace radar infrastructure for reliable, more secure, enhanced situational awareness and communication.’
