Discriminator radar


Raytheon Company is to develop a prototype High Power Discriminator (HPD) radar for the US Navy. Initial funding on the contract is $7.4 million. This is one alternative being assessed by the Navy to reduce risk in the Navy Theatre Wide Theatre Ballistic Missile Defense program.
The High Power Discriminator concept is a ship based X-Band radar that provides long-range detection, tracking and discrimination of advanced theatre ballistic missile (TBM) threats. HPD takes advantage of the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization's substantial investment in the Theatre High-Altitude Air Defense (THAAD) radar by leveraging proven active array technologies and complex theatre missile defense software. The HPD radar would work as an adjunct radar within the AEGIS Weapon System to counter the most advanced long-range TBM targets.
Under the four-year contract, Raytheon will, if fully funded, design, develop, fabricate and test a radar prototype. If fully funded, the radar will undergo extensive testing at a land-based site and at sea. Engineering and design work will take place in facilities located in Bedford and Sudbury, Mass.
The contract has a, not to exceed, value of $118 million.
