Raytheon radar for USN
The US Navy’s Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) has awarded Raytheon Company up to $104 million to conduct operations and maintenance for the Relocatable Over-the-Horizon Radar (ROTHR) program. ROTHR is a long-range surveillance radar used by the US government in counter narco-terrorism operations. Raytheon designed and built ROTHR and will provide operations support, modernization and maintenance of the radar system. ROTHR is a high-frequency radar system originally designed and built to provide long-range detection and tracking of aircraft and ships. Each radar provides more than 2.5 million square miles of coverage area, resulting in extremely low operational costs.
