Lockheed Martin Delivers MMSR for AUTEC

Monday, March 27, 2006
Lockheed Martin delivered its Multi-Mission Surveillance Radar (MMSR) system to the U.S. Navy for use at its Atlantic Underwater Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC). AUTEC is the U.S. Navy's undersea warfare systems test complex, located at Andros Island in the Bahamas. The new MMSR system will measure the location of aircraft and surface ships in support of submarine testing at the AUTEC test range. This single MMSR radar replaces existing radars that were distributed along the test range coast.

"Lockheed Martin MS2 recently delivered an important radar system for use at AUTEC in the Bahamas," said John H. Visneuski, AUTEC Program Manager. "That provides us with the capability to localize a large number of air and sea targets across the full area of the test range." "The MMSR system has mid-range surveillance capability - 50 nautical miles (approximately 57 statute miles) - with clutter cancellation and stationary target detection features that provide the Navy with the very accurate positioning information that it needs in all types of weather," said Rich Bulak, Lockheed Martin program manager.

The MMSR radar was produced at Lockheed Martin's facility in Syracuse, NY, following a $5.5 million contract awarded by the Naval Underwater Warfare Center in 2002.
