Raytheon Updates Middle Eastern Missile Radar System; Dave Gulla Comments

Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon (NYSE: RTN) has redesigned a main component of a ballistic missile defense radar for an unnamed foreign military sales customer in the Middle East.

The new circuit cards seek to update the AN/TPY-2’s capability to detect, locate and track airborne projectile weapons, Raytheon said Tuesday.

Dave Gulla, Raytheon vice president for integrated defense systems, said a goal of the redesign is to guarantee production of the AN/TPY-2 for international defense operations.

The AN/TPY-2 is a mobile X-band phased-array radar that works to discriminate all ballistic missile types for U.S. and allied forces.
