Raytheon Radar system plays critical role in recent flight test.

In a recent Missile Defense Agency test, Raytheon's Army/Navy Transportable-2 radar, better known as the A-EN-Tip-ee-2, supported the first launch-on-remote engagement of the SM-3 Block one A against an intermediate range ballistic missile. Located on Wake Island, the A-EN-Tip-ee-2 supported the launch by detecting and tracking the target. This test demonstrates remote engagement capabilities of the system, a major milestone in the first phase of the Obama administration's Phased Adaptive Approach for missile defense in Europe.

Chiarelli made the statements during his testimony at the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing April 5. Currently, 12 countries including the United States have selected Patriot as their Air and Missile Defense System.
