ThalesRaytheon JV to Sell Army Improved Sentinel Radars

ThalesRaytheonSystems announced it will provide the U.S. Army with 56 Improved Sentinel Battlefield Air Defense AN/MPQ-64 Radars.

This radar is a three-dimensional, phased-array radar system that operates in the X-band frequency range. The radar’s primary mission is to automatically detect, track, identify and report airborne threats, including aircraft, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

“The Sentinel battlefield radar not only meets the needs of today’s soldier, but will grow and evolve as requirements, threats and the mission changes, ” said Kim Kerry, CEO of U.S. operations for ThalesRaytheonSystems. “With a low-risk modernization roadmap, the Sentinel radar is one of the most cost-effective and reliable radar systems available to our armed forces.”
