​USN orders integrated air and missile defence radars from Raytheon

20th July 2020 - 13:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


US Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded Raytheon Missiles & Defense a $125.88 million contract modification to provide six Enterprise Air Surveillance Radar (EASR) low-rate initial production units.

Raytheon will produce four AN/SPY-6(V)2 rotating radars for air and missile defence, plus two AN/SPY-6(V)3 static radars. 

The former will be deployed on the America-class amphibious assault ship USS Bougainville (pictured); the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis; and two San Antonio-class landing platform dock vessels (USS Richard M. McCool Jr and USS Harrisburg). 

The AN/SPY-6(V)3 EASR fixed-faced LRIP units will be deployed on the Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy and the first-in-class FFG(X) guided missile frigate.

Work is expected to be completed by January 2023. 

EASR integrated air and missile defence radars are being installed on more than 50 ships across seven USN ship classes.
