MOORESTOWN (BNS): The US Navy has awarded Lockheed Martin a $119 million contract to demonstrate its conceptual designs for the Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) intended to upgrade the Navy’s future capability against advanced anti-ship and ballistic missile threats.

Lockheed Martin was one of three industry teams competitively selected to advance its designs for the AMDR S-band radar and the radar suite controller under a 24-month technology demonstration phase contract, the company said in a statement.

The AMDR suite is scalable and can accommodate current and future mission requirements for multiple platforms. The AMDR S-band radar will provide volume search, tracking, ballistic missile defense discrimination and missile communications.

The AMDR X-band radar, part of a separate procurement, will provide horizon search, precision tracking, missile communication and terminal illumination.

Both radars will be integrated by the radar suite controller, which will provide the appropriate interfaces between the two radar bands and the ship's combat system.
