MOORESTOWN, N.J. The world's latest generation solid-state radar technology, formerly known as Lockheed Martin's Solid State Radar (LM SSR), has been designated as AN/SPY-7(V)1 by the U.S. government. The designation of AN/SPY-7(V)1 reflects the maturity and capability of Lockheed Martin's solid-state radar technology.
The Japanese Ministry of Defense selected AN/SPY-7(V)1 for two planned Aegis Ashore installations in 2018. Variants of AN/SPY-7(V)1 will be used by the Royal Canadian Navy for the Canadian Surface Combatant program and the Spanish Navy for the upcoming F-110 frigate program.
According to the company, AN/SPY-7(V)1 is a modular and scalable solid state radar, allowing for continuous surveillance and protection. It will be fully integrated with the Aegis Combat System, providing advanced technology for future ship classes.
