Cummings helps Raytheon field technology that over-matches threat

HUNTSVILE, Ala. (August 5, 2019) — The U.S. Army will soon be evaluating a new missile defense radar, featuring technology from Cummings Aerospace. The radar, made by Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) is being evaluated by the U.S. Army as part of a competition for the Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor. Raytheon submitted its proposal on July 16.

 

“Our number one priority is helping Raytheon provide the warfighter a brand new radar at the speed of relevance,” said Sheila Cummings, CEO of Cummings Aerospace. “We have the experience and capability to help provide the men and women in uniform a mature, cutting edge and incredibly capable radar.”
