Raytheon's Air & Missile Defense Radar Tracks Threats Simultaneously

Raytheon's AN/SPY-6(V) Air and Missile Defense Radar has acquired and tracked multiple threat-representative targets simultaneously during its third dedicated flight test at the U.S. Navy's Pacific Missile Range Facility, Kauai, Hawaii.

Test success proved AN/SPY-6(V) integrated air and missile defense performance against a short-range ballistic missile target and multiple anti-ship cruise missile targets. The radar searched for, detected and tracked all targets from launch throughout their flights. The test demonstrated the radar's sensitivity and resource management, a critical multi-mission capability to extend the battlespace and safeguard the fleet from multiple threats.

Successes for AN/SPY-6(V) continue to stack up, following its second ballistic missile test flight in July. The radar has now demonstrated its performance against an array of singular and simultaneous live targets of increasing complexity, including integrated air and missile defense targets of opportunity, satellites and aircraft.
