Raytheon Hands Air, Missile Defense Radar Array to US Navy; Tad Dickenson Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon has transported an air and missile defense radar array to the U.S. Navy‘s Pacific Missile Range Facility in Hawaii, where the system will undergo an initial light-off later in July.

The first AN/SPY-6(V) Air and Missile Defense Radar array has been installed at the facility and will enter the engineering and manufacturing development phase, Raytheon said Thursday.

The integrated air and ballistic missile defense radar will move into the low-rate initial production stage after the design, fabrication and initial tests.

“Several months of testing at our near-field range facility, where the array completed characterization and calibration, have proven the system ready for live target tracking,” said Tad Dickenson, Raytheon’s AMDR program director.

Scheduled for delivery in 2019, Raytheon designed the SPY-6(V) for the first DDG 51 Flight III destroyer.
