Missile defense sensor proposal submitted by Raytheon

TEWSKBURY, Mass. Raytheon Company announced the submission of its Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) proposal to the U.S. Army as part of the competition for a new air and missile defense radar.

Raytheon's LTAMDS solution is a simultaneous 360-degree, Active Electronically Scanned Array radar powered by Raytheon-manufactured Gallium Nitride, a substance that strengthens the radar signal and enhances its sensitivity.

Raytheon's LTAMDS offering was demonstrated in an event known as a sense-off, which put Raytheon's LTAMDS solution through a series of challenging scenarios.

Raytheon assembled a team of U.S.-based partners to play a role in Raytheon's proposed LTAMDS solution including Crane Aerospace & Electronics, Cummings Aerospace, and Mercury Systems.
