Raytheon and Lockheed Martin Join Hands

Raytheon Company and Lockheed Martin Corporation are jointly pursuing the Spectrum Efficient National Surveillance Radar (SENSR) contract that will consolidate and modernise America’s ageing surveillance and air traffic control radars.
 
SENSR is a multi-agency programme that includes the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security. It aims to replace current air traffic control and surveillance radars with fewer, more advanced multi-mission systems and release wireless spectrum for commercial use.
 
“There’s an increasing demand for radio spectrum that’s driving the rapid expansion of wireless Internet services across America,” said Ralph Acaba, president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. “SENSR will revolutionise our airspace radar infrastructure for reliable, more secure, enhanced situational awareness and communication.”
 
Implementing SENSR is vital to the growth, safety and efficiency of commercial industries, air traffic control, homeland security and national security. The consolidation effort will free up a tremendous amount of bandwidth that can be used to move America rapidly toward a 5G capability.
 
Together, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin have over a century of civilian and military radar expertise in more than 60 countries. Both companies bring extensive experience across radio frequency bands and mission areas, specifically in the development of Active Electronically Scanned Array radars. Raytheon and Lockheed Martin combined air traffic and surveillance solutions support more than 60 per cent of the world’s airspace.
