Seven Things You Should Know About the World’s Most Advanced Radar
The world’s most advanced radar can track more targets across longer ranges than any existing radar. It gives warfighters the information they need to keep us safe.
1. SPY-7 technology works on land or at sea.
We use radar building blocks – think Legos® -- to scale our technology to the size and scope our customers need. They need an at-sea radar to track a small number of objects? Can do. They need a large, land-based radar to track many ballistic or hypersonic missiles? We can do that, too.
2. SPY-7 has 3.3 times the detection range of the existing SPY-1 radars and better detection range than any competitor radar.
3. Men and women in the armed services can depend on SPY-7 to differentiate between harmful or harmless targets.
4. Unlike current radar, soldiers can operate the radar while they perform maintenance on SPY-7, so there is no gap in protection.
5. For how capable it is, this tech is surprisingly affordable.
6. This radar is ready now. It’s in production today.
7. SPY-7 has been selected by four countries to protect its citizens and defense forces.
Japan, Canada, Spain and the U.S. have all selected SPY-7. Canada and Spain have selected this radar for their newest combat ships, and Japan has stated they will deploy SPY-7 on sea-based platforms or vessels. The U.S. currently uses it in land-based applications.
