Raytheon Company of Waltham, MA, USA is advancing in the US Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) competition and has now entered the Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction (TMRR) phase of the program.

During TMRR, Raytheon will demonstrate LTAMDS performance through multiple technology demonstrations, using a fully operational array and later an integrated radar prototype, to prove the maturity of the Raytheon design.

“We’ve worked with the US Army for decades to address advancing threats with the latest technology,” says Tom Laliberty, VP of Integrated Air and Missile Defense at Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) business in Tewksbury, MA. “Our expertise in the lower-tier air and missile defense domain, combined with our gallium nitride (GaN)-based sensor technology, allows us to offer the US Army the radar they need, when they need it.”

As the LTAMDS program progresses, Raytheon will:

  • develop key prototyping that reduces risk and further matures the technology;
  • deliver detailed designs that prove capability and production readiness; and
  • deliver a support plan to the Army's testing for mobility and sustainability.
