Lockheed Martin showcase radar technology during US Army’s Sense-Off

Lockheed Martin has successfully completed a demonstration of its radar solution for the US Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) program during a Sense-Off at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.

During the two-week demonstration period, the Lockheed Martin team completed a series of exercises showcasing the radar solution and how it will meet the Army’s requirements for the LTAMDS system, while providing additional deployment strategies for the air and missile defence mission.

The company’s radar offering will incorporate a balance of mature production radar technology in a scalable, next-generation architecture designed to evolve as mission needs change. Both Lockheed Martin and its strategic partner, ELTA Systems Limited, are prepared to conduct the testing it takes to successfully meet the Army’s timeline.

Dr Rob Smith, Vice President and General Manager of Radar and Sensor Systems at Lockheed Martin, said: “The LTAMDS program requires mature technology specifically designed to address the threat, which Lockheed Martin and ELTA both bring to the program. We are demonstrating and proposing an innovative approach,” said

“We will leverage technology that is production-ready and proven in the field, allowing us to meet the Army’s requirements quickly and provide qualified systems within 24 months after the initial contract award. 

“We have a proven track record of performing on programs with aggressive development and delivery needs, such as the Q-53 radar, where both capability and schedule commitments are extremely important.”
