Raytheon completes first test for LTAMDS radar
Raytheon has completed the first test of the US Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defence Sensor (LTAMDS) according to a company statement on 17 March.
The first radar had been built by Raytheon on 21 February.
Tom Laliberty, Vice President of Integrated Air and Missile Defence at Raytheon said: ‘Concluding these initial tests brings Raytheon one step closer to putting LTAMDS into the hands of service members.’
The LTAMDS system includes one primary antenna array at the front and two secondary arrays located at the back of the system. It provides all-round coverage without blindspots and is roughly the same size as Raytheon’s Patriot missile defence system.
