Lockheed Martin to Develop Model for New U.S. Navy Air and Missile Defense Radar

Lockheed Martin has been contracted by the U.S. Navy to perform concept studies for the Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR).

“AMDR will provide a scalable radar suite that will deliver enhanced capability against evolving threats for current and future ship platforms.” said Carl Bannar, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin’s Radar Systems.

Under the $10 million firm-fixed-price contract, Lockheed will assess possible system configurations for AMDR. They are one of just three companies to receive ADMR contracts. Lockheed is a worldwide leader in S-Band radar development and production and will be focusing on this type of radar along with the Radar Suite Controller (RSC) aspects of the AMDR during the six-month concept phase.

“Through our established partnership with the Navy, ” continued Bannar. “Lockheed Martin will build on our 30-year naval radar heritage to meet the challenging mission requirements envisioned for AMDR with an open, capable, and affordable system solution.”
