Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS)
Raytheon’s solution to the competitive development of the U.S. Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor, or LTAMDS, combines five decades of integrated air and missile defense leadership with unmatched radar expertise across all domains. The result is a 360° capability that can meet the rapidly changing needs of today’s soldiers.
Our approach to LTAMDS draws from a portfolio of combat-proven capabilities and radar building blocks that ultimately fit together like Legos. These technologies and capabilities are scalable, modular and configurable to meet the LTAMDS requirements and mission at the speed of relevance.
Raytheon is the industry leader in Gallium Nitride, or GaN, technology with:
- More than $300 million invested since 1999
- The only vertically integrated Department of Defense accredited Category 1A Trusted Foundry with MRL-8 GaN capability
We leverage these key in-house capabilities in our LTAMDS radar solution to decrease cost while increasing cyber assurance, quality control, accessibility and program life cycle support. Our maturity in GaN technology provides the agility to bring advanced capability to soldiers faster than ever before.
