Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar (3DELRR)
The regional and near-peer conflicts of the future provide a challenging environment where warfighters find themselves confronted by large numbers of advanced and highly capable drones, fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft and ballistic and cruise missiles. Aging expeditionary radars, some of which date back to the 1970s, will not be able to outpace the growing dangers of the modern battlefield.
Raytheon’s Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar, or 3DELRR.
The radar, which Raytheon designed and manufactured for the U.S. Air Force, is one of the first U.S. systems built from the ground-up with exportability in mind. As a Department of Defense Design Exportability Features (DEF) Program, concurrent design enables more cost effective and timely fielding of systems for U.S. forces, allies and security partners.
Raytheon's 3DELRR solution is a C-band Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based radar. This combination enables warfighters to affordably detect, identify and track a wide variety of objects very accurately at great distances. Additionally, C-band is a relatively uncongested portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, providing our warfighters additional operational flexibility.
3DELRR is interoperable with coalition systems and capable of meeting the requirements of many foreign militaries
At the end of the day, Raytheon’s innovative 3DELRR solution enables friendly forces to stay one step ahead of the evolving threat.
