Raytheon Demos Air, Missile Defense Radar Software for Navy; Tad Dickenson Comments

Raytheon logo_EbizA Raytheon-made computer program has used data from the U.S. Navy‘s air and missile defense radar system to detect a target during an anti-air warfare simulation.

The demonstration was part of a software build assessment under the Navy AMDR program and sought to exhibit the company’s software development model, Raytheon said Monday.

“By leveraging the agile process, as well as reuse of radar software architecture, simulation data and experience gained during the technology demonstration phase, execution of the AMDR program continues on schedule,” said Tad Dickenson, AMDR program manager at Raytheon.

Dickenson added the company is scheduled to deliver the defense radar system for integration into a DDG-51 Flight III destroyer in 2019.

Raytheon practices agile software development with the goal of accelerating cycle time from production to testing and identifying potential technical issues early.

The AMDR software build process also showcased the platform’s ballistic missile search and tracking features and the company’s draft framework for hardware integration.
