US Navy’s Next-Generation Integrated Air & Missile Defence Radar
Raytheon has been awarded a $327 million contract for low rate initial production of the AN/SPY-6(V) Air & Missile Defense Radar (AMDR). The order covers production of the first three shipsets for what the company describes as, “the US Navy’s next-generation integrated air and missile defence radar.”
“Progressing to production is the result of a lot of hard work and dedication from our AMDR team of experts across Raytheon, the Navy, and our world-class suppliers. In just over three years of the Engineering, Manufacturing and Development phase, we’ve gone from a technology demonstrator to a technically mature, highly advanced, functioning radar,” Tad Dickenson, Director of the AMDR programme at Raytheon, commented.
