The company "Reyteon" gave the US armed forces the eighth radar AN / TPY-2

The company "Reyteon" announced the transfer of the United States Department of Defense (MDA) anti-missile defense agency (MDA) of the eighth mobile radar AN / TPY-2.


AN / TPY-2 is the X-band mobile multifunction radar with a phased-array antenna and high resolution developed by Reiteon.

Using special algorithms, the station provides early detection and tracking of various threats, including ballistic missiles (from short-range missiles to intercontinental ballistic missiles). The radar detection range exceeds 1000 km.

Radar is an important component of the US missile defense system, performing the functions of detecting, identifying targets, tracking an interceptor missile, exchanging data with it, and evaluating the results of interception.

The station can be used as part of THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile defense systems, and also as a separate detection component as part of an echeloned missile defense system.

Currently, the forward-looking radar AN / TPY-2 is deployed in Japan, Israel and Turkey.

Previously, Reiteon signed contracts for the supply of X / NUMX radar AN / TPY-11.

      The radar uses a trailer, with a one-way, broadband phased antenna, an area of ​​9,2 square meters. The antenna has 72 modules - transceivers using semiconductor technology, which provide control of a total of 25344 elements of the antenna. In the "forward-based" mode or TPY-2 surround search mode, the high output power and signal width allows it to perform aerial surveillance at high altitudes and ranges up to 1000 km (600 miles). In the "Terminal" (targeting) mode, it performs aerial identification and tracking of targets.

      These tasks may include tracking ballistic missiles. While the radar is adapted to accompany ballistic missiles of small and medium range. TPY-2 radar can be used against longer-range missiles. In the X-frequency range and setting a narrow beam width, an additional advantage is added that allows you to distinguish between small objects, such as a warhead, compared to space debris ("range resolution"). The negative side is that they are not as good as the huge SSPARS / UEWR radars in search of a wide range of space, and, of course, they have a much shorter range. Currently, their optimal use is the fight against long-range attacks, observation of the early stage of missiles from the forward base, as well as proactive surveillance, for the subsequent connection of large radars.

      The entire AN / TPY-2 radar system includes:
      Phased Antenna Equipment (AEU)
      Equipment Cooling Device (CES) for use with an antenna
      Electronic block of equipment (EurAsEC)
      1,3mW Premier-Power Unit (PPU)
      A control unit (OCU) that allows soldiers to see radar results, monitor the system, and communicate. It has its own built-in power supply.

      That is, it is an operational deployment radar, for preliminary monitoring of goals. Therefore, it was put in Turkey - it will not take it any further.

      And grandmas - a thing - for 3 pieces with spare parts they paid 207.9 million bucks !!! ($ 207900000)!

    Russia has all the technologies for creating orbital stations. So far we have complied with the agreement on the non-deployment of weapons in outer space, but in principle, creating a space combat platform equipped with nuclear missiles will not be difficult for Russia.

      Will make up, and what kind of work. I’m not saying that this is impossible for us. And yet, what is the point of nuclear weapons also in space? Here, just non-nuclear high-precision will be just right.

    Very good detection range and compact size ... a couple of planes and anywhere in the ball, a dangerous station

      Iskander strikes at 300 kilometers, this radar is part of the NATO missile defense system, if placed at 500 kilometers from the border, Iskander will not help. True, they will not shoot down at the start as they wanted.

        Iskander hits 300 kilometers

        Export option. Troop Iskander-M-480km (according to Western data)
        Iskander -K with KR R-500 -500km (up to 700km according to doubtful data)

    The Iskander has a range of 500 km ... so this is not a solution

      The radar just catches SCUDES, ISKANDERS, S-300, S-25-200, airplanes, helicopters. Only a low-flying winged anti-radar missile, or a pair of saboteurs with RPGs or bumblebees, can beat this.

    There is something for our developers to strive for, the little thing is good (really, how about noise immunity?)!

      Remember the fighters, depending on the situation, in the army, the cosine can reach five. smile

    There was such an amazing R-36orb missile system. with an orbital rocket. Such a complex can solve all problems with missile defense.

    Just because a radar catches them doesn’t mean that the striped anti-rocket is shooting down.

      But with this they strained, in particular regarding the 9M723 missile for sure. not to mention the P-500

    The Iskander’s range depends on the type of missile, ballistic or cruise, well, plus export restrictions
    Here is a link for 2000 km
