Raytheon has submitted its proposal for the Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) to the US Army.

The army is seeking a new air and missile defence radar, which Raytheon hopes to provide with a new simultaneous 360-degree, Active Electronically Scanned Array radar powered by Raytheon-manufactured Gallium Nitride, a substance that strengthens the radar signal and enhances its sensitivity.

The company has already demonstrated its solution during the army’s sense-off event in May, during which it was put through a series of challenging scenarios.

Tom Laliberty, Raytheon vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense, said: ‘Our proposal offers the army a brand-new radar that overmatches the future threat. We brought our LTAMDS solution to the US Army's sensor demonstration and validated our ability to meet their 2022 urgent material release date.’
