Lockheed Unit Wins $6.4 M For Radar Development

Sanders, a Lockheed Martin Co., received an initial $6.4 million contract from the Navy for the Advanced Technology Development (ATD) phase of its High Frequency Surface Wave Radar (HFSWR) shipboard program. The Naval Command Control and Ocean Surveillance Center (NCCOSC), Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation Center (NRaD) is the contracting agency and is conducting this ATD. Under the contract, Sanders will evaluate the ability of a shipboard HFSWR system to detect and track cruise missiles and other low-flying threats at over-the-horizon ranges. The radar developed and delivered for this ATD program will transfer HFSWR technology to a shipboard system that will be tested against real and simulated threats. This system will permit U.S. Navy LSD-41 class and all other Ship Self-Defense System (SSDS) equipped ships to successfully defend against existing and future anti-ship missiles. Work will be performed over the next two years at Sanders' Surveillance Systems Division in Hudson, N.H.
