Lockheed Martin said in a statement today that its radar shop has been selected to participate in the Army's Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor event at White Sands Missile Range, NM, this spring.

"Lockheed Martin can confirm it has been selected and plans to participate in the U.S. Army's Sense Off demonstration," said Rae Fulkerson, a company spokeswoman. "We look forward to continuing to support the Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor mission and future capabilities based on our proven Active Electronically Scanned Array and Gallium Nitride-fielded technology."

Raytheon last week announced it was participating in the LTAMDS "sense off," a high-stakes assessment that could deliver a multibillion-dollar reward for the major project to modernize the Army's Patriot radar inventory.
