Raytheon's TPY-2

TEWKSBURY, MASSACHUSETTES (BNS): The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has awarded Raytheon a $190 million fixed price incentive fee contract to construct, integrate and test new Army/Navy Transportable Radar Surveillance (AN/TPY-2) radar.

"The AN/TPY-2 provides a critical Ballistic Missile Defense capability for the warfighter," said David Gulla, vice president, National & Theater Security Programs, Raytheon.

This will be the eighth AN/TPY-2 Raytheon has built for MDA. The seventh was delivered earlier this year ahead of schedule, Raytheon said.

The radars are deployed by MDA for forward operations to deter, dissuade, and if necessary, enable defeat of enemy ballistic missiles, as well as to support test and development of the Ballistic Missile Defense System.

Raytheon's AN/TPY-2 provides a common mission capability - in terminal-based mode with the THAAD Fire Control Center in support of the THAAD weapon system, and in a forward-based mode with Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications, enabling MDA's Ballistic Missile Defense System.

It is a phased array radar, capable of search, threat detection, classification, discrimination and precision tracking at extremely long ranges, Raytheon said.
