Mercury Systems has won a new subcontract from Raytheon, valued at up to USD 96 million over three years, to deliver high-performance signal processing sub-systems for the US Army’s Lower Tier Air & Missile Defense System (LTAMDS).
The award covers hardware for the next nine LTAMDS radars for the US Army and Poland, the system’s first international customer. LTAMDS is a 360° AESA radar that will operate within the Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense Network, offering coverage against airborne threats ranging from cruise and hypersonic missiles to manned and unmanned aircraft. Mercury has already delivered its “advanced, edge-ready processing solution” for the first six radars, which are currently progressing through integration and test activities.
