Raytheon Delivers First AN/SPY-6 for USN ARLEIGH BURKE Flight III

Offers Unmatched Simultaneous Air and Missile Defense

Raytheon Missiles & Defense has delivered the first AN/SPY-6(V)1 radar array for the USS JACK H LUCAS (DDG-125), first of the USN’s ARLEIGH BURKE Flight III guided missile destroyers, the company announced on 21 July. The SPY-6  family of radars provides simultaneous air, missile and surface defense on seven classes of USN vessels.

SPY-6 will change how the Navy conducts surface fleet operations,” explained Capt Jason Hall, Program Manager for Above-Water Sensors for the USN Program Executive Office for Integrated Warfare Systems. “Our ships will be able to see farther, react quicker and defend against threats in a way we couldn’t before.”

This is the start of what will be a steady stream of SPY-6 array deliveries to the [Huntington Ingalls] shipyard,” stated Kim Ernzen, VP of Naval Power at Raytheon Missiles & Defense. “Threats to Navy ships are getting smaller and faster. SPY-6 will extend the Navy’s reach against dangers like drones, ballistic missiles, aircraft and unmanned ships.”
