Raytheon To Provide Mobile Radar to MDA

by

Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems of Tewksbury, Mass., nabbed a $190 million cost-plus contract from the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to build and test an eighth AN/TPY-2 mobile radar system for ballistic missile defense, the company announced Oct. 27.

The mobile phased array radars are used in conjunction with the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system and the MDA’s forward-deployed Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications systems, the press release said. Raytheon earlier this year delivered its seventh AN/TPY-2 radar to the MDA on cost and ahead of schedule, the release said.
