Teledyne to help cool X-band radars

21st August 2020 - 18:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Teledyne Brown Engineering announced on 20 August that it has been awarded a $29 million contract from Raytheon to produce and sustain cooling equipment units (CEUs) on the Army Navy/Transportable Radar Surveillance (AN/TPY-2) X-band missile defence radar.

The AN/TPY-2 is the world’s most powerful ground mobile radar system and requires one CEU per unit. The system interfaces with the Lockheed Martin-supplied Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system.

The CEU is a transportable shelter that houses power distribution to the radar and provides temperature-controlled liquid cooling to the antenna equipment unit.

According to Shephard Defence Insight, AN/TPY-2 can be used to detect both short- and long-range ballistic missiles and to discern these from other objects such as space debris.
