Raytheon Hands MDA Missile Defense Radar Cooling Unit; David Gulla Comments

Raytheon-logoRaytheon has supplied the Missile Defense Agency with a device that works to cool radars that the U.S. and allies use to identify potential ballistic threats.

MDA received the cooling system a year earlier than scheduled and the agency aims to increase deployments of AN/TPY-2 radars that work to counter nearly 6,300 enemy missiles, Raytheon said Wednesday.

“Giving MDA the flexibility to quickly deploy an additional AN/TPY-2 is a step toward meeting the growing demand for this radar,” said David Gulla, Raytheon vice president of global integrated sensors.

Under a logistics support contract, Raytheon will seek to help the MDA manage assets and meet increasing demand for components that make up the weapons detection tool.

AN/TPY-2 radars are designed to function for two types of defense systems that can detect, identify, track and destroy suspicious missiles and other ballistic threats.
