Raytheon successfully completed a customer demonstration of new U.S. Air Force expeditionary ground-based prototype radar. Designed to replace the decades old TPS-75 radar system, the Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar (3DELRR) will help defend warfighters against emerging threats by detecting, identifying and tracking fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, missiles and unmanned aircraft.

During the June 27 demonstration, which was witnessed by U.S. Air Force and Marine Corps personnel, Raytheon's 3DELRR tracked targets of opportunity and maneuvering tactical aircraft. Raytheon's advanced 3DELRR prototype also demonstrated integration into the Air Force's next-generation Command and Control node.

“The flawless performance of our 3DELRR prototype is the latest chapter in Raytheon's seven decades of radar leadership and commitment to customer success,” said Dave Gulla, Vice President of Global Integrated Sensors for Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business.

Raytheon's 3DELRR solution is a C-band Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based radar. This combination enables warfighters to affordably detect, identify and track a wide variety of objects very accurately at great distances.

“Our 3DELRR solution meets the customer's requirements, has a high level of system availability, and just as important, is extremely affordable to purchase, own and operate.  For example, as a DoD-recognized industry leader in GaN, Raytheon is able to capitalize on efficiencies and reduce costs in unique ways,” said Andrew Hajek, 3DELRR Program Director for Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business.
