The primary Decrease Tier Air and Missile Protection Sensor, constructed by Raytheon Missiles & Protection, a Raytheon Applied sciences enterprise, arrived on the U.S. Military’s White Sands Missile Vary on April eleventh. The radar is the most recent air and missile protection sensor for the U.S. Military, offering considerably extra capability and functionality in opposition to the big selection of advancing threats going through air defenders world wide. That is the primary of six radars deliberate for supply to the Military in 2022 and marks the start of a collection of in depth checks to show LTAMDS efficiency and performance in an operational surroundings.

“Along with the Military, we got down to construct a radar that might detect and defend in opposition to complicated and evolving threats whereas lowering the workload on operators – and we’ve executed it with LTAMDS,” stated Tom Laliberty, president of RMD’s Land Warfare & Air Protection enterprise unit. “LTAMDS offers dramatically extra efficiency in opposition to the vary of threats, from manned and unmanned plane to cruise missiles and ballistic missiles. Air protection forces world wide are taking discover of LTAMDS, with over a dozen international locations exhibiting formal curiosity in buying the radar.”


LTAMDS is a 360-degree, Energetic Electronically Scanned Array radar powered by RMD-manufactured Gallium Nitride, a substance that strengthens the radar’s sign, enhances its sensitivity, and will increase its reliability. LTAMDS is designed to function as a sensor within the U.S. Military’s Built-in Air and Missile Protection Battle Command System. LTAMDS, designed particularly for the U.S. Military’s decrease tier mission, is the primary sensor in a household of radars Raytheon is asking GhostEye®. These sensors can detect in any other case unseen threats at higher distances, greater velocities, and from any route. Leveraging the developments of GaN know-how and commonality with LTAMDS, Raytheon has individually developed GhostEye MR, a medium-range battlefield radar.

Raytheon Missiles & Protection brings international clients essentially the most superior end-to-end options delivering the benefit of 1 progressive companion to detect, observe, and intercept threats. With a broad portfolio of air and missile protection techniques, precision weapons, radars, command and management techniques and superior protection applied sciences Raytheon Missiles & Protection options defend residents, warfighters and infrastructure in additional than fifty international locations world wide.
