DRS Technologies Wins $64 Million to Manufacture ASMD Radar Systems
AN SPQ-9B shipboard radar

DRS Laurel Technologies has won $64 million contract for delivery of AN/SPQ-9B ASMD radar systems and associated equipment for the US Navy and Japan. 

This contract is for the manufacture of up to 59 AN/SPQ-9B radar systems. The AN/SPQ-9B provides Navy ships the capability to detect and track low-flying, high-speed, small Radar Cross Section (RCS) anti-ship missile targets in heavy clutter environments, US department of defense said in a statement Thursday.

The system uses a high-resolution, track-while-scan, X-band, pulse-doppler radar to provide real time acquisition and automatic tracking of multiple surface and air targets while maintaining the surface detection, gunfire control and navigational capabilities. AN/SPQ-9B maximizes the use of commercial-off-the-shelf and non-developmental item equipment. 

This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $262 million.  The work is expected to be completed by June 2022.
