Raytheon Opens New $72 Million Facility to Support Complex Radar Testing and Integration

Raytheon has opened a new $72 million, 30,000 square foot Radar facility at its Andover, Mass. campus, which is now home to some of the leading innovations in manufacturing. The new facility features advanced automation technology to support complex radar testing and integration.

The new radar facility in Andover supports quality, reliability, repeatability and delivery speed through:

  • Two near field radar test ranges, one of which is now the largest in the company
  • 1.5 megawatt substation to meet power requirements of current and future radar programs
  • Autonomous material movement via automated guided vehicles
  • The aerospace and defense industry's first "dual robotic" system for radar array assembly

The new radar development facility is the primary location for integration and testing of current and future radar programs for U.S. and international customers. AN/SPY-6, the U.S. Navy's next-generation integrated air and missile defense radar, now in low rate initial production, is the first system to enter the space. For more information, click here.
