Raytheon's LTAMDS radar.

Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS)


​​​Air and missile threats are advancing and evolving.

As the U.S. Army embarks on a radar renaissance, Raytheon is designing and developing a solution for the Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor, or LTAMDS.

Raytheon's solution is designed to be fully operable with the U.S. Army’s existing architecture. It draws from a portfolio of combat-proven capabilities and radar modular assemblies that are scalable and configurable. Significant testing hours in our open-air range provide the confidence that Raytheon’s radar will meet the LTAMDS requirements and mission.

Raytheon’s LTAMDS solution expands battlespace coverage to protect soldiers from advanced air and missile threats. Its design helps the U.S. Army prevail when they confront the “tyranny of distance” in places like the Pacific theater, where the vast expanse of ocean complicates communications and situational understanding.  

Raytheon is a pioneer in Gallium Nitride, or GaN, technology, and is infusing the powerful semiconductor material into its LTAMDS design to bring advanced capability to soldiers faster than ever before.
