Raytheon provides details of its newest air and missile defense radar at Sea-Air-Space 2019

Defense company Raytheon will exhibit advanced technologies and services to support maritime superiority during annual Sea-Air-Space Exposition, the largest maritime exposition in the United States.

Raytheon also announced on Monday that it will give details on U.S. Navy’s next generation integrated air and missile defense radar, known as SPY-6.

The defense giant reported that new radar currently in production, and on track for the DDG-51 Flight III destroyer, SPY-6 provides the Navy with unmatched protection against air, surface, and ballistic missile threats.

The radar is built with individual ‘building blocks’ called Radar Modular Assemblies. Each RMA is a self-contained radar in a 2’x2’x2’ box. These RMAs can stack together to form any size array to fit the mission requirements of any ship. This technology makes SPY-6 the Navy’s first truly scalable radar.

SPY-6 provides greater range, increased accuracy, greater resistance to environmental and man-made electronic clutter, higher reliability and sustainability than currently deployed radars. The radar’s demonstrated sensitivity – significantly more than current radars in the Navy – provides greater coverage for early and accurate detection.
