Raytheon announced today production of the first group of S-band transmit and receive modules manufactured for the U.S. Navy’s Air and Missile Defense Radar program is complete.

“Our AMDR T/R modules are demonstrating significant capability and performance reliability,” said Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems’ Kevin Peppe, vice president of Seapower Capability Systems. “Leveraging our established manufacturing expertise, experience and capacity, we will deliver a low-risk, high-performance system on schedule and on budget.”

AMDR will provide the Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class destroyers with S and X-band radar and radar suite controller. The S-band allows for volume search, tracking, ballistic missile defense and missile communications. The X-band enables horizon searches, tracking, missile communications and terminal illumination. The system is scalable and interoperable.

With the production of the group, Raytheon says its demonstrated the manufacturing readiness needed for AMDR Phase III. At that stage, teams competing in the program will produce a functioning radar.
