Lockheed Martin has given the U.S. Navy its final proposal for a new air and missile defense radar, designed for DDG-51 Flight III class destroyers.
The company said its AMDR S-band radar and radar suite controller is designed to detect and respond to anti-ship and ballistic missile threats.
The company designed the radar by using modular, open hardware and software architectures, said Carl Bannar, vice president for integrated warfare systems and sensors within the mission systems and sensors business.
More than 100 surface combatants around the world use Lockheed’s SPY-1 family of radars, according to the company.
Lockheed is also working with the Navy to develop submarine imaging systems, including two photonics masts for nuclear, ballistic and other types of submarines.
According to the Defense Department, the Navy will use the masts to conduct visual and electronic search and manage digital images.
