Raytheon Offers LTAMDS Radar To US Army
Patriot air defence system

Raytheon has offered its Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar to the United States (US) army.

"We offered the US Army our new LTAMDS AESA radar, and validated our ability to meet their 2022 urgent material release date,” said Tom Laliberty, Raytheon Vice President of Integrated Air and Missile Defense.

The Raytheon radar is powered by Gallium Nitride (GaN), a substance that strengthens the radar signal and enhances its sensitivity.

The company designed the radar as a solution for US Army’s LTAMDS competition, which involves replacing radar currently used by Patriot missile units. The service aims to field the new radar to the first Patriot battalion by the end of 2022.

The company’s offering was demonstrated in May 2019 in army sense-off event, where even Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman also demonstrated their solutions.
