Raytheon to Provide Navy Airport Radar Systems

The Navy has purchased two digital airport surveillance radar systems from Raytheon, the company announced Monday.

The ASR-11 provides both primary and secondary surveillance radar coverage and will be incorporated into the U.S. national airspace system.

The Waltham, Mass-based company said the radars will be installed at military bases in New River, N.C. and Quantico, Va.

The radars will provide air traffic controllers with aircraft detection and weather displays.

ASR-11 also ties in with Raytheon’s mobile air traffic control, which backs up existing airport navigation infrastructure.

The company will help the Navy install the new radars as part of a modernization program, supporting the FAA’s NextGen program.
