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.

“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.”
