Raytheon Wins U.S. Army Contract to Enhance Radar Defense System
Lower Tier Air & Missile Defense Sensor

Raytheon has secured a contract from the U.S. Army to extend the scope of its Advanced Distributed Radar (ADR) initiative, now encompassing the Lower Tier Air & Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS).

Under the terms of the contract, Raytheon's Advanced Technology team will be responsible for the development of the necessary software to create a network that connects multiple 360-degree LTAMDS radars. This interconnected system is aimed at enhancing defense capabilities and safeguarding against emerging threats.

The ADR concept was initially designed by Raytheon to upgrade the U.S. Navy's AN/SPY-6(V) radar family, with a focus on improving performance during distributed maritime operations and enhancing future sensing capabilities. Now, the project is being expanded to meet the Army's increasingly complex security challenges.

Colin Whelan, President of Advanced Technology at Raytheon, explained that Raytheon's common radar software product line model generates a library of software code that can be reused across various radar systems, leading to reduced engineering costs and quicker development timelines for their customers.
