Raytheon to Supply Air and Missile Defense Radars to the U.S. Army

Raytheon has been selected to provide the US Army with their next-generation, 360-degree radar - the Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS). Raytheon will receive more than $384 million to deliver six production representative units of the advanced LTAMDS radar under the Other Transactional Authority U.S. Army agreement. LTAMDS is a new radar that will ultimately replace the current U.S. Army's Patriot radars. It will operate on the Army's Integrated Air and Missile Defense network.

Patriot is the world's leading, combat-proven air and missile defense system, and 17 nations have procured 240 radars from Raytheon. With the U.S. Army's approval, these Patriot partners will have the opportunity to add Active Electronic Scanned Array, 360-degree capability to their inventory, extending the life of their systems for many decades.

Raytheon's winning LTAMDS solution is a 360-degree, Active Electronically Scanned Array radar manufactured using Gallium Nitride technology. Over the past two decades, Raytheon has invested significantly in AESA GaN technology and advanced manufacturing capability, positioning the company as the global leader in advanced GaN technology and product development.

Raytheon assembled a team of suppliers who played a strategic role in developing Raytheon's LTAMDS solution. These suppliers include Crane Aerospace & Electronics, Cummings Aerospace, IERUS Technologies, Kord Technologies, Mercury Systems, and nLogic.
