Raytheon has opened a new radar development facility at its Andover, Massachusetts-based site, the company announced on 6 August.

The new $72 million, 30,000sq ft facility features advanced automation technology to support complex radar testing and integration.

The facility houses two near field radar test ranges, 1.5 megawatt substation to meet power requirements of current and future radar programmes, autonomous material movement via automated guided vehicles and a dual robotic system for radar array assembly for the aerospace and defence industry.

The US Navy's AN/SPY-6 next-generation integrated air and missile defence radar, which is now in low rate initial production, is the first system to enter to the new facility.
