As Raytheon readies to transport the first below-deck equipment for AN/SPY-6(V)1 Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) to be installed in the guided-missile destroyer Flight III Arleigh Burke-class DDG 125, the company is developing ways to tap the radar's flexibility and scalability for other ships.

Raytheon expects to ship the AN/SPY-6(V)1 below-deck components by the end of the first full week of May, Scott Pence, company director of naval radar told Jane's during a 6 May briefing at the Navy League 2019 Sea-Air-Space exposition, held in National Harbor, Maryland, from 6 to 8 May.

At the same time, he said, Raytheon is working with the navy to develop a backfitted version of the radar for Flight IIA DDGs, scaled to the existing ship's footprint.
