Raytheon Selected to Supply Radar System for Manchester Airport
Raytheon Company was awarded a contract to supply a radar system at Manchester Airport, United Kingdom
Raytheon Company was selected to supply a radar system to replace legacy equipment at Manchester Airport in the United Kingdom under an extension to NATS’ Radar Site Services (RSS) programme.
The delivery and installation of the system will provide NATS with commonality across its en route surveillance infrastructure and, in this case, provide the same equipment being supplied to other major airports where NATS provides engineering support and systems.
This additional system for Manchester Airport, comprising an ASR-10SS S-Band Primary Surveillance Radar with a Mode S Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radar, brings to 25 the number of systems that Raytheon UK is delivering at NATS’ sites throughout the U.K.
“Raytheon has collaborated closely with us over the past 11 years to ensure our national radar network is performing for the optimum benefit of our customers with a continual programme of upgrading and modernising,” said David Hawken, NATS engineering service delivery general manager. “We look forward to this site being included.”
“RSS is a flagship programme for Raytheon UK,” said Richard Daniel, Raytheon U.K. director, Defence and Program Leadership. “The extension of the contract further demonstrates Raytheon’s ability to deliver turnkey radar solutions worldwide.”
