Raytheon inks radar and THAAD deal with UAE

Tewksbury, US: Raytheon will provide AN/TPY-2 radars, associated spares, training and other services through 2018 to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the radar component to the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defence system. This USD 582.5 million contract for the radars is part of the first sale of THAAD missile systems to an international customer.
Dave Gulla, Vice President for Global Integrated Sensors at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, said, “With this contract, the UAE becomes the first international customer to acquire the world’s most advanced mobile radar, which better positions the Emirates to defend itself from threats.”
The AN/TPY-2, Raytheon’s mobile, solid-state, phased array X-band radar, is being provided to the UAE through the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) as a Foreign Military Sale under the Arms Export Control Act.
