Raytheon has been awarded a $212 million contract by the Missile Defense Agency for the manufacture, delivery and integration support of one Terminal High Altitude Area Defense radar, also called the AN/TPY-2 radar. "The AN/TPY-2 radar plays a vital role in the Ballistic Missile Defense System, protecting the U.S., deployed forces and allies from ballistic missile threats," said Pete Franklin, vice president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems' (IDS) Missile Defense business.

"This award underscores the Missile Defense Agency's confidence in Raytheon's ability to deliver affordable, advanced sensor capabilities to meet the Ballistic Missile Defense System mission."

Under the terms of the contract, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will manufacture one AN/TPY-2 radar. Work will be performed at Raytheon's Missile Defense Center in Woburn, Mass., and at the company's Integrated Air Defense Center in Andover, Mass.

The AN/TPY-2 is a high-power, transportable X-Band radar designed to detect, track and discriminate ballistic missile threats.

Raytheon IDS designed and built the AN/TPY-2 radar for the Ballistic Missile Defense System and the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense weapon system drawing on extensive sensor knowledge from its X-Band "Family of Radars."
