Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin aims to pursue the U.S. Army‘s planned acquisition of a lower-tier air and missile defense sensor that will operate in the Army’s integrated air and missile defense network and replace the Patriot radar.

The company said Friday the Army wants a new sensor that could meet mobility and transportability targets as well as reduce sustainment costs.

“With this request for information, the Army recognizes that a new radar is required to meet the current and emerging air and missile defense threats,” said Tim Cahill, vice president of Lockheed’s air and missile defense unit.

Brad Hicks, vice president of Lockheed’s mission systems and training segment, said the company can develop a 360-degree IAMD radar based on its existing technology to meet the Army’s requirements.

Lockheed’s radar technology programs include the Medium Extended Air Defense System, Space Fence, Long Range Discrimination Radar, 3D Expeditionary Long Range Radar, AN/TPQ-53 and Aegis.
