Lockheed Martin has partnered with Weibel Scientific to design, build and test a doppler radar technology for helping military customers to defeat ballistic missile threats.
The Gap-Filling Tracking Radar will be built to have precision tracking and discrimination features and to leverage NATO‘s European ballistic missile defense architecture, Lockheed said Monday.
The companies formed their partnership through an industrial cooperation agreement approved by the Danish Business Authority.
Brad Hicks, Lockheed vice president for integrated warfare systems and sensors, said the companies aim to help Denmark and allies to detect and engage ballistic missiles with BMD radar technology.
GFTR development work will occur at a Lockheed facility in Moorestown, New Jersey, and at several Weibel Scientific facilities in Denmark.
