SYRACUSE, NEW YORK (BNS): Lockheed Martin has submitted its contract proposal for full-rate production of new US Army radar that provides soldiers in combat with enhanced 360-degree protection from rockets, mortars and artillery.

The Enhanced AN/TPQ-36 (EQ-36) Counterfire Target Acquisition Radar, developed by Lockheed Martin under a separate 2007 contract, can detect, classify, track and locate the source of enemy indirect fire in either 360- or 90-degree modes.

EQ-36 will eventually replace legacy AN/TPQ-36 and AN/TPQ-37 medium-range radars now in the Army’s inventory, the company said.

In July 2008, based on successes with the concurrent development program, the Army awarded Lockheed Martin an accelerated contract for 12 initial production EQ-36 systems.

In April 2010, the company received an additional order for 17 more EQ-36 radar systems. In August 2011, the first two of these radars were delivered ahead of schedule and a contract option was exercised to expand the order to 20 systems.
