New AESA to Patriots 11 August, 2017

Lockheed Martin introduces the new Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar prototype as part of its next generation air and missile defense sensor development.

The 360-degree scanning capability radar is capable of tracking ballistic missiles. Radar is constructed with modular architecture and planned to replace the MPQ-65 radar used in Patriot systems when all work is completed. It is expected that the radar which developed with GaN technology will have a lifecycle of 30 years.
