Raytheon has announced the completion of technical testing during the US Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) sense-off at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, US.

The two-week missile defence demonstration has showcased Raytheon’s readiness to deliver mission-critical LTAMDS capability to the US Army.

Raytheon integrated air and missile defence vice-president Tom Laliberty said: “Raytheon’s clean-sheet approach and decades-long investments in gallium nitride technology allowed us to demonstrate and deliver a mature solution that will meet the army’s initial operational capability.”

In addition to major investments by Raytheon, strategic industrial partners Crane Aerospace & Electronics, IERUS Technologies, Cummings Aerospace, Kord, Mercury Systems and nLogic played a key role in achieving the army’s accelerated sense-off timetable.

Raytheon’s LTAMDS programme director Doug Burgess said: “Our industrial partners contribute the unique technology and capabilities necessary to ensure our LTAMDS solution supports service members.”

During the sense-off, Raytheon’s LTAMDS solution has demonstrated key mission capabilities to service members, validated the maturity of the LTAMDS design, acquired and tracked a variety of threat-representative targets.
