Lockheed is leveraging a rich history of technology and manufacturing development work over roughly 40 years to rapidly bring the new radar to the fight faster than a traditional program.
In the area of mobility, Lockheed is using the same leveling system and motion control that is used for the U.S. Army’s AN/TPQ-53 counterfire radars currently in production.
Mekker said Lockheed is looking forward to working with the U.S. Army over the next year on maturing its requirements to meet current and future threats.
Raytheon has been very vocal about its GaN Active Electronically Scanned Array sensor for the next-generation Patriot radar, which will provide a 360-degree capability.
The company said it couldn’t comment on the LTAMDS for competitive reasons but noted the radar it has built has logged over 1,000 hours of testing.
