Aerospace giant Raytheon announced on its Twitter account that the Polish government has submitted a Letter of Request to the US Government for Missile Defense and Lower Level Sensors (LTAMDS).
The next generation radar is designed to counter hypersonic weapons and was built for the US Army by Raytheon Missiles & Defense.
LTAMDS has three antenna arrays – a main array on the front and two sub arrays on the back. They work together, detecting and engaging multiple threats from any direction at once.

The main array is about the same size as the one for the Patriot Air and Missile Defense System, but it’s more than twice as powerful. The radar is designed for the US Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense Systems, but it will also preserve the investment of existing military customers in the Patriot system.
The new LTAMDS radar will replace the US Army’s Patriot radars and operate on the Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense network.
