Raytheon Finishes Building of Lower Tier Air & Missile Defense Sensor Radar Antenna for the US Army

Raytheon has announced that they have finished building the first radar antenna array for the U.S. Army's Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor. Raytheon completed the work in less than 120 days after the U.S. Army selected Raytheon to build the LTAMDS (Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor), a next-generation radar that will defeat advanced threats like hypersonic weapons.

The newly built primary array, similar in size to the Patriot radar array, will provide more than twice its performance. Following extensive testing, the radar array will be mounted on a precision-machined enclosure for integration and further evaluation. The enclosure utilizes advanced design and manufacturing techniques for accelerated manufacture to support the U.S. Army's Urgent Materiel Release program.

Raytheon is working closely with hundreds of suppliers across 42 states, including a core team playing a strategic role in building the LTAMDS solution. They core team consists of the following companies:
