The AN/APY-9 radar is an integral part of the Advanced Hawkeye program for the United States Navy’s Surveillance and Theatre Air and Missile Defense (TAMD) missions. The APY-9 provides the enhanced airborne command and control and expanded surveillance for the Navy’s E-2D aircraft. The radar is an all-weather, airborne early warning radar designed to detect small, highly maneuverable targets in the dense littoral and overland environments.
The award, worthing around $600 million, calls for production over an additional five years, with deliveries commencing in 2021. The order will include Lockheed Martin’s new Advanced Radar Processor. Production work will take place in Syracuse and Oswego, NY and Clearwater, FL.
We’re excited to have the opportunity to continue producing APY-9 radars for the Navy’s use on its Advanced Hawkeye aircraft and to continue supporting our customers with performance upgrades on a regular basis […] The team has performed extremely well to date in terms of delivering all of our APY-9 systems on or ahead of schedule,” said Lockheed Martin’s Airborne and National Surveillance Radar Programme Director, Ken Kaminski. …read more
