    Raytheon bags Boeing radar deal for India aircraft

    Farnboruogh (UK): US defence and aerospace major Raytheon has bagged a contract from Boeing for developing a new long-range, multi-mission radar that will be installed in the sophisticated P-8I surveillance aircraft being built for the Indian Navy, the company said Sunday.

    "The maritime and overland surveillance radar, APY-10, will be put on Boeing's P-8I being built for the Indian Navy. This is the first international contract award for Raytheon's programme, extending the company's considerable presence in the international maritime surveillance market," said Tim Carey, vice president of Raytheon's Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems.

    India signed a USD 2.1 billion deal with top aircraft manufacturer Boeing for eight P-8I planes in 2009. The first of the aircraft is scheduled to be delivered to India in 2012.

    "Our APY-10 radar will provide the Indian Navy with proven, low-risk technology built on generations of successful Raytheon radar systems," Carey, who is here to attend Farnborough International Air Show, one of the largest in the world, said.

    "We are committed to providing reliable systems that keep our customer safe and help them achieve mission success," he said.

    The APY-10 radar delivers accurate and actionable information in all weather, day and night, for anti-submarine and anti-surface warship operations and for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission support, said Neil K Peterson, Raytheon's director of strategy and business development.

    A member of the industry team that Boeing leads for the US Navy's P-8A programme, Raytheon is also under contract with Boeing to provide six APY-10 systems and spares for the P-8A, of which the P-8I is a variant. Four of the six radar systems have been delivered and Raytheon remains on or ahead of the production schedule, said Peterson.

    "The radar we will be giving to the Indian Navy's planes will have more features than those with The US Navy," he said.

    The radars will be able to work at significantly tactical ranges and also detect small targets.

    They will be capable of image targeting at very long ranges and also be able to carry out overall land operations including in the coastal regions.

    Asked about the value of the radar deal with Boeing, Peterson said, "We can't disclose this as yet. We are working out all the details."

    Raytheon, an 88-year-old company with sales of over A USD 25 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specialising in defence, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world.

    The biennial Farnborough show traditionally sees the announcement of orders for military jets.

    The AN/APS-137B(V)5 is the only production radar system that provides both multi-resolution SAR and ISAR, allowing exceptional surveillance capability over land, sea, and in littoral regions.

    The APS-137 family of radars has consistently demonstrated outstanding performance in anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW). Current operational capabilities include long-range surface search and target tracking, periscope detection in high sea states, ship imaging and classification using Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR), and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) for overland surveillance, ground mapping, and targeting.

    Historically, the U.S. Navy's maritime mission has consisted of blue water (open ocean) operations only. Today, the main threat is littoral warfare which requires mission capability in the land-water transition region. The Navy's ASuW Improvement Program (AIP) was initiated to meet this new operational requirement.

    The APS-137B(V)5 radar was designed for the AIP to provide high-resolution ISAR for imaging and classifying small, fast-moving vessels that operate close to the shore and SAR for imaging stationary ships and boats as well as coastal and overland surveillance. The new SAR mode provides multiple resolution strip map and spot SAR operation, and has high-resolution capability for target ID, battle damage assessment (BDA), and targeting.

    Since the first AIP P-3 squadron deployed with the APS-137B(V)5 in May 1998, they have been in constant demand to support regional conflicts and peacekeeping operations. The capabilities and performance of the APS-137 radar have received high praise from the fleet as a true force multiplier.

    Other related programs and upgrades include a precision targeting capability at long stand-off ranges, a ground moving target indication (GMTI) mode, and a variant suitable for the S-3B aircraft.

    The latest generation of the AN/APS-137 has been granted a new nomenclature, the AN/APY-10, by the U.S. Navy because of Raytheon's many innovations to the radar for the P-8A Multi-mission Maritime

    Raytheon Delivers First International Maritime Surveillance Radar to Boeing for Indian’s P-8I aircraft


    Raytheon Company has delivered the first international version of its APY-10 surveillance radar to Boeing. The radar will be installed on the P-8I aircraft Boeing is building for the Indian navy.â€￾Our APY-10 radar will provide the Indian navy with proven, low-risk technology built on generations of successful Raytheon maritime radar systems,â€￾ said Tim Carey, vice president for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems at Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems business. “Adaptable and configurable, the APY-10 radar is a premier example of Raytheon’s ability to meet key customer requirements.â€￾

    The APY-10 radar delivers accurate and actionable information in all weather, day and night, for anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, and for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

    To meet unique requirements for the Indian navy, Raytheon has added an air-to-air mode, which provides the detection and tracking of airborne targets, allowing customers to detect threats in the air as well as at sea. In addition, an interleaved weather and surface search capability has been added to provide the cockpit with up-to-date weather avoidance information while performing surveillance missions.

    With reduced weight and power consumption, the APY-10 radar has improved the average mean time between failure by six times over earlier generation radars. In addition to the new capabilities, the design can accommodate significant future growth. Raytheon is under contract to produce eight APY-10 radars for the Indian navy.

    About Raytheon Raytheon Company, with 2011 sales of $25 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 90 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as a broad range of mission support services.

    Raytheon Delivers Unique Radar for Indian P8I

    Raytheon has delivered a unique surveillance radar to Boeing to be installed on the Indian Navy's P8I maritime surveillance aircraft. The radar offers air-to-sea, air-to-air and weather monitoring capabilities, it was announced during a press conference at the Singapore Air Show 2012.


    This one-of-its kind radar was built to the Indian Navy's specifications and allows the user to detect threats in the air as well as at sea. In addition, an inteleaved weather and surface search capability has been added to provide the cockpit with up-to-date weather avoidance information while performing surveillance missions.

    Raytheon's Vice President for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconaissance Systems at the company's Space and Airborne Systems Business, Tim Carey said, "Our APY-10 Radar will provide the Indian Navy with proven, low risk tecnology built on generations of successful Raytheon maritime radar systems".

    With reduced weight and power consumption, the APY-10 raar has improved the average mean time between failures by six times over earlier generation radars. In addition, the design offers significant growth possibilities, Tim added.

    Tim did not wish to comment on the price of the radar but added that he expects the radar to attract attention from other navies in the Asia Pacific region.
