Building the next-generation radar for the U.S. Army: How early collaboration led to LTAMDS success CASE STUDY Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) LEARN MORE ABOUT MERCURY'S PROCESSING CAPABILITIES LEARN MORE ABOUT RAYTHEON'S LTAMDS RADAR CHALLENGE Help Raytheon Missiles & Defense (RMD) design a new lower-tier air and missile defense sensor that implements innovative capabilities for the modern battlefield, adapts to future needs and supports Raytheon's proven radar processing software architecture. SOLUTION Teaming with RMD to define a solution that would meet performance, software portability, reliability, modernization and cost targets, Mercury invested top-tier engineering resources and provided a detailed trade-off analysis of cost, performance, reliability and risk. Raytheon and Mercury engineering experts tapped into Mercury 's proven system design and integration expertise to identify the best approach to combining software and hardware in a software-agnostic, scalable, high-performance system. RESULT By collaborating early in the design process, Mercury 's expertise and engineering resources helped RMD build an optimal sensor. LTAMDS successfully met all sustainability, scalability and reliability requirements for the U.S. Army, and RMD was selected to continue technology development of LTAMDS, the Army 's next-generation radar.
