US Government Names Lockheed Martin's Solid State Radar AN/SPY-7(V)1

The US Government has given Lockheed Martin's Solid State Radar (LM SSR) the designation of AN/SPY-7(V)1. This is a direct reflection of the maturity and capability of Lockheed Martin's solid-state radar technology.

The Japanese Ministry of Defense selected AN/SPY-7(V)1 for two planned Aegis Ashore installations in 2018. Additionally, variants of AN/SPY-7(V)1 will be used by the Royal Canadian Navy for the Canadian Surface Combatant program and the Spanish Navy for the upcoming F-110 frigate program.

Lockheed Martin's solid-state solution is flexible enough to adapt to the evolving threats of the future. This new designation solidifies their ability to provide the most technically advanced capabilities to the warfighters. AN/SPY-7(V)1 is a modular and scalable solid-state radar, that allows for continuous surveillance and protection. It will be fully integrated with the Aegis Combat System, providing advanced technology for future ship classes.

Lockheed Martin and the Aegis Combat System continue to keep pace with evolving integrated air and missile threats, introducing new capabilities to create the latest generation of advanced solid-state technologies, integrated with the Aegis system, to provide world-class defense and ensure future safety and security.
