Raytheon has been awarded a $6 million study and demonstration contract by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to further develop an Enterprise Air Surveillance Radar (EASR). 

Raytheon's EASR concept leverages proven Radar Modular Assembly (RMA) architecture matured on Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR). EASR's flexible approach meets the performance needs of different candidate ship classes for ship self-defense, situational awareness, air traffic control, and weather monitoring. 

The Radar Modular Assembly (RMA) affords EASR the scalability to be used on a variety of ship sizes across a diverse set of mission requirements ultimately offering reduced total ownership cost across all the EASR equipped platforms. The RMA has been designed and tested to prove that it operates successfully in the stressing EASR naval marine environments. 

"It is clear that the Navy is committed to leveraging the latest in technology and innovation to stay ahead of evolving threats," said Paul Ferraro, vice president of Advanced Technology Programs for Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business. "The next generation EASR radar program is the latest example of Raytheon's partnership with ONR to drive advancement and provide affordable best in class solutions." 

Raytheon is the largest producer of active phased arrays in the world and has a long and distinguished history of providing Naval radar systems. Raytheon's EASR approach directly benefits the Government by innovatively applying proven technologies and leveraging significant investment by the Navy and Raytheon in the ONR Digital Array Radar (DAR) and AMDR programs.
