Army Research Lab, Raytheon to Collaborate on Radar Tech Development - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon will collaborate with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory to develop modular building blocks for the service branch’s Next Generation Radar program under a two-year, $1.1 million cooperative research agreement.

The partnership aims to explore approaches to design and fabricate modular components for integration into the NGR’s open architecture and address flexibility, agility and efficiency requirements across radar bands, Raytheon said Monday.

Colin Whelan, Raytheon vice president of advanced technology, said the company will use its knowledge of gallium nitride technology to help Army increase its radar coverage and stay ahead of its adversaries.

Raytheon noted that its GaN components have been tested to demonstrate a capacity to deliver power for more than 100 million hours without failure as well as provide radars a capacity to operate with up to five times more power than older semiconductor models without overheating.
