The US Air Force has awarded a $52.7 million engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) contract to Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems for the Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar (3DELRR), the company announced on 11 May.

This is the second time Raytheon has been awarded an EMD contract for the 3DELRR. The air force issued the original contract in 2014, but the programme was delayed following competitor protests.

Raytheon will provide three 3DELRR production representative units under the EMD contract, with work expected to be complete by 30 November 2020.

Raytheon's 3DELRR solution is a C-band Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based radar. This combination enables soldiers to detect, identify and track a wide variety of objects very accurately at long ranges. C-band is a relatively uncongested portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, providing increased operational flexibility.
