The Ballistic Missile Defense Report provides listeners with updates on developments in missile defense. Each week, listeners receive timely insight into industry milestones and world events that shape missile defense policy and progress. On the report's website, listeners and viewers will find content from previous reports and additional information on missile defense, including links to information about integrated air and missile defense and the Phased Adaptive Approach to missile defense in Europe.
The U.S. Army has approved a second recertification of Raytheon's Patriot missiles, which will extend the operational life of the missiles from 30 to 45 years. This is great news for Patriot's customers around the world who can now recertify and upgrade their Raytheon Patriot missiles at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new missiles. The Letterkenny Army Depot in Pennsylvania and Raytheon will perform the recertification work. All upgrade work will be done by Raytheon at its Andover, Massachusetts facility.
In a recent interview, alliance Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow expressed that the U.S.change to global missile defense could dispel Russian concern and foster cooperation. The new plans for the U.S. missile shield, announced in March, would station 14 Ground Based Interceptors, including Raytheon's EKV, in Alaska and halts the development of a new Aegis interceptor.
Raytheon Company announced the delivery of its eighth AN/TPY-2 ballistic missile defense radar to the Missile Defense Agency. The mobile radar acquires and tracks ballistic missile threats after launch, providing U.S. Combatant Commanders with mission critical target information. Earlier this month, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel discussed plans to deploy an AN/TPY-2 radar to Japan as part of the U.S.'s efforts to ‘beef up' missile defense protection from North Korean and Iranian threats.
The Missile Defense Agency says a Raytheon Standard Missile-3 Block 1B interceptor successfully shot down a ballistic missile target during a flight test in Kauai, Hawaii. It was the missile system's 20th successful intercept, but the first for its newest, evolved variant, which will enable the defeat of sophisticated threats around the world. Essential to the Obama administration's phase two of the Phased Adaptive Approach to long-term missile defense in Europe, the SM-3 Block 1B will be deployed ashore and at sea on Navy cruisers and destroyers.
Germany may become one of the first nations to integrate Raytheon's Standard Missile-3 onto its naval vessels according to the German Chief of Naval Operations, Axel Schimpf. Though the German government has not made a decision on whether to adapt its fleet of frigates for ballistic missile defense, the enhancements would allow Germany to participate in the Obama administration's European Phased Adaptive Approach embraced by NATO. "Depending on the political decision and funding, the German Navy stands ready to provide sea-based capabilities," Schimpf said.
Recently, the U.S. Navy awarded Raytheon Company a $106.4 million modification award for the production of Aegis-related equipment, including the AN/SPY-1(D)V radar transmitter and MK99 Mod 14 Fire Control System. With this modification, Raytheon continues its long history of reliable manufacturing of these two essential components, which are both key elements of the Aegis systems. These components have been in production for more than 30 years as part of the U.S. Navy's Aegis shipbuilding program.
