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.
