Raytheon’s Air & Missile Defence Sensor Succeeds in Tracking and Intercepting Complex Targets

Raytheon has announced the success of its Lower Tier Air and Missile Defence Sensor (LTAMDS) in a live-fire demonstration.

During the test, the LTAMDS demonstrated its ability to identify, track, and pass target data to the Integrated Battle Command System, which then directed an enhanced PAC-3 missile to intercept it.

The LTAMDS radar constitutes the next generation of air and missile defence radar for the U.S. Army.

It features a 360-degree angle of operation, utilises Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) and Raytheon’s Gallium Nitride (GaN) technologies, providing superior performance against a full spectrum of threats, including manned and unmanned aircraft, cruise missiles, tactical missiles, as well as hypersonic weapons.
