TEWKSBURY, MASSACHUSETTS (BNS): Raytheon has delivered its eighth AN/TPY-2 radar to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) in support of the US combatant commands.

An integral capability of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), AN/TPY-2 is a mobile, X-band phased-array radar that helps protect the US, deployed forces by searching, acquiring and tracking threat ballistic missiles and discriminating between threats and non-threats.

The AN/TPY-2 radar Raytheon delivered will serve in terminal mode as the fire control radar for the US Army's Terminal High Altitude Area Defense missile defense system.

Other forward-based AN/TPY-2's that are deployed around the globe cue the BMDS by detecting, tracking and discriminating enemy ballistic missiles in the ascent phase of flight.

"The AN/TPY-2 has proven itself an indispensable component of our nation's ballistic missile defense and has performed flawlessly in every test to date against every category of ballistic missile, and in raid scenarios," said Dave Gulla, vice president of Global Integrated Sensors in Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business.

AN/TPY-2 is a high resolution, mobile, rapidly deployable X-band Radar capable of providing long-range acquisition, precision track and discrimination of all classes of ballistic missiles, from Short-Range Ballistic Missiles to Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.
