Lockheed Completes Installation of Telephonics Radar on 74K Aerostat System - top government contractors - best government contracting eventLockheed Martin has retrofitted its 74K Aerostat System with a Telephonics-made radar to further support warfighting missions on land and at sea.

Lockheed said Tuesday the installation of the RDR-1700B radar succeeds the integration of other radar sensors from Leonardo and Northrop Grumman and electro-optic/infrared cameras from L3 Technologies“˜ Wescam subsidiary on the airship.

Jerry Mamrol, vice president of navigation, surveillance and unmanned systems for Lockheed, said the Telephonics radar provides multidomain, modular and open architecture capabilities that can help streamline development efforts.

Lockheed's 74k aerostat system is designed to automate the exchange of information between tactical and theater surveillance systems, as well as circulate operational threat data to mitigate attacks from adversaries.

The persistent threat detection system has achieved over 1.6M combat mission flight hours during its service in the U.S. Army.
