Army Missile Defense Sensor Contractor Downselection Expected in September

Jeff Brody

The U.S. Army could pick a vendor in September to produce the Lower-Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor system, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Daryl Youngman, deputy director of the Army’s air and missile defense cross-functional team, said at the 2019 Space and Missile Defense Symposium in Alabama that LTAMDS is one of the service’s top four air and missile defense modernization priorities and should be open to upgrades to meet future requirements.

Three teams competed in a “sense off” demonstration conducted between May and June at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico and submitted their LTAMDS proposals in July. Those teams are Raytheon (NYSE: RTN), Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), which partners with Israel-based firm Elta.

The Army expects the Patriot radar replacement to reach initial operating capability in 2022.
