G D to support U S Navy's AMDR programme


FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA (BNS): General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems has been awarded a contract to support the engineering and manufacturing development of the U S Navy's next-generation integrated Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR).

General Dynamics will support Raytheon as they build, integrate and test an open, highly scalable and energy efficient advanced radar system to detect ballistic missiles and air and surface targets.

AMDR is the U S Navy's next-generation integrated air and missile defence radar and is being designed for Flight III Arleigh Burke-class (DDG 51) destroyers beginning in 2016.

AMDR consists of an S-band radar, an X-band radar and a Radar Suite Controller (RSC). AMDR-S is a new development integrated air and missile defence radar designed for long-range detection and engagement of advanced threats.

The X-band radar is an existing horizon-search radar. The RSC provides S- and X-band radar resource management, coordination and interface to the Aegis combat system.

Raytheon was awarded the AMDR contract in October 2013.
