Raytheon’s solution to the U.S. Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor, or LTAMDS, is a brand new radar designed from the ground up with the increasingly complex and technologically advanced threats of tomorrow in mind. It combines five decades of integrated air and missile defense leadership with unmatched radar expertise across all domains. The result is expanded battlespace that sees threats coming from all directions at all times while continuously maintaining target tracks.

"Raytheon's clean-sheet approach and decades-long investments in gallium nitride technology allowed us to demonstrate and deliver a mature solution that will meet the Army's initial operational capability," said Tom Laliberty, vice president of integrated air and missile defense at Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business.

In addition to significant Raytheon investments, strategic industrial partners Crane Aerospace & Electronics, Cummings Aerospace, IERUS Technologies, Kord, Mercury Systems, and nLogic were integral to achieving the Army's accelerated sense-off timetable. "Our industrial partners contribute the unique technology and capabilities necessary to ensure our LTAMDS solution supports service members," said Doug Burgess, Raytheon's LTAMDS program director.

During the next phase of the competition, Raytheon will develop and deliver a final proposal addressing the Army's key evaluation criteria.
