SPY-7 Is the Backbone of Multiple Defense Systems on Land, Air & Sea

The World’s Most Powerful and Versatile Radar

Keeping You Safe at Home and Abroad

SPY-7 radar is the most advanced technology that will provide the capability to make warfighter decisions – accurately and quickly. SPY-7 has the ability to detect, track and engage sophisticated ballistic missile and advanced air threats. It engages multiple targets simultaneously with proven interceptors.

A modular, scalable software defined digital solid state radar, SPY-7 is a superior technology that provides several times the performance of traditional SPY-1 radars.

The SPY-7 is also interoperable with other radars and platforms. It’s fully compatible with the Aegis Combat System and is being fielded with domestic and international customers, such as the Missile Defense Agency for the Long-Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR), US Navy for the Spanish F-110 Frigate and the Canadian Surface Combatant.
