AN/SPY-7

AN/SPY-7, formerly known as Lockheed Martin’s Solid State Radar (LM SSR), is operating in the S band modular and scalable radar intended to build different configurations for land- and sea-based applications. The radar can be used for multiple missions, such as early warning, situational awareness, tactical surveillance, and air defence.

The radar shares the same core technology as the Long-Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR). It is configured for various applications, including the efficient insertion of new capabilities without hardware changes. The system is integrated into US Navy Ticonderoga-class cruisers and Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers. The land-based variant, Aegis Ashore, is utilized in the United States, Spain, and Japan and is currently deployed in Romania as part of the NATO missile defense system.
