Sultanate of Oman to buy the air defense missile system THAAD from United States.
The Governments of the Sultanate of Oman and the United States of America are pleased to announce a deal for the acquisition of a U.S. manufactured ground based air defense system THAAD. The Persian Gulf sultanate of Oman is set to buy a $2.1 billion missile system built by the U.S. Raytheon Co. as part of a U.S. drive to install a coordinated air-defense system linking the region's Arab monarchies to counter Iran.
     
     

This system, which has been selected by the Sultanate of Oman following a thorough evaluation and assessment process, offers high levels of effectiveness, capable of meeting the operational requirements of the Royal Air Force of Oman and providing seamless air protection by virtue of its cutting edge air defense technology.

In the meantime, final negotiations on the procurement of the system are in progress with U.S. defense manufacturer Raytheon Company and a final conclusion of the deal is expected following agreements on the technical aspects of the system, through life support and maintenance and other related matters.

The THAAD Radar System is part of a strong, coordinated defense against incoming theater ballistic missiles.

The Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) System is the upper tier of the Army's two-tier Theater Missile Defense Concept. The wide-area, higher-altitude protection of the THAAD System interfaces with the lower-tier Patriot System.

An integral part of the THAAD System, the THAAD radar is an X-band, phased array, solid-state radar. It supports the long-range functional requirements of the THAAD mission by delivering high power output and exceptional beam/waveform agility.

The THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile system is an easily transportable defensive weapon system to protect against hostile incoming threats such as tactical and theatre ballistic missiles at ranges of 200km and at altitudes up to 150km.
