The US Government has designated Lockheed Martin‘s advanced solid-state radar technology as AN/SPY-7(V)1.

Lockheed Martin noted that AN/SPY-7(V)1 is the world’s latest generation solid-state radar technology.

The radar was previously known as Lockheed Martin’s Solid State Radar (LM SSR).

Japan chose the LM SSR to support its Aegis Ashore ballistic missile defence batteries in July last year.

The radar and Aegis Ashore will protect Japan from ballistic missile threats.

Spain and Canada also selected the latest generation radar. The solid state radar will equip the Royal Canadian Navy’s Canadian Surface Combatant programme and the Spanish Navy’s F-110 frigates.

Lockheed Martin vice-president and general manager Paul Lemmo said: “Lockheed Martin’s solid state solution meets the mission now and is flexible to adapt to the evolving threats of the future.

“This new designation solidifies our ability to provide the most technically advanced capabilities our warfighters require.”

The company’s AN/SPY-7(V)1 radar is a modular and scalable solution that will enable continuous surveillance.

The system will be fully integrated with Lockheed Martin’s Aegis maritime ballistic missile defence system to offer protection for future ship classes.

In January last year, the company demonstrated the capability to connect components of the Aegis Ashore and Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) technologies.

The integration of the systems will improve situational awareness and provide earlier intelligence to the warfighter.

Aegis Ashore is the land-based version of the navy’s Aegis Weapons System.

The company’s solid state radar is a scalable radar building block based on gallium nitride (GaN) technology.
