Lockheed Martin Demonstrates New Radar Capabilities

Thursday, May 29, 2003
Lockheed Martin showcased its newest radar capabilities to U.S. Navy officials, legislators and international customers. Lockheed Martin's Moorestown facility is world-renowned for its advanced naval radars, especially its SPY-1 phased array radar. SPY-1 is the main sensor in the Lockheed Martin-developed Aegis Weapon System, which is installed on 65 percent of the U.S. Navy's surface combatants, warships in Japan and Spain, and recently was selected for warships in Norway and Korea. During today's event, Lockheed Martin publicly unveiled its newest radar, the S-Band Advanced Radar, or SBAR. SBAR provides greatly improved detection at much greater ranges than the current SPY-1 radar, a key requirement to counter ballistic missile defense threats. Additionally, SBAR will improve the U.S. Navy's ship self-defense and anti-air warfare capability. SBAR development reached a major milestone late last year with the successful demonstration of basic radar capability in its prototype.
