US Designates Lockheed's New Solid State Radar as AN/SPY-7(V)1

The United States government has designated Lockheed Martin's latest generation solid-state radar technology, as AN/SPY-7(V)1.

"The world's latest generation solid-state radar technology, formerly known as Lockheed Martin's Solid State Radar (LM SSR), has been designated as AN/SPY-7(V)1 by the United States government," the company said in a statement Thursday.

The Japanese Ministry of Defense selected AN/SPY-7(V)1 for two planned Aegis Ashore installations in 2018. Additionally, variants of AN/SPY-7(V)1 will be used by the Royal Canadian Navy for the Canadian Surface Combatant program and the Spanish Navy for the upcoming F-110 frigate program.

AN/SPY-7(V)1 is a modular and scalable solid state radar, allowing for continuous surveillance and protection. It will be fully integrated with the Aegis Combat System, providing advanced technology for future ship classes.
