WALTHAM, Mass., - Raytheon Company and Lockheed Martin Corporation are jointly pursuing the Spectrum Efficient National Surveillance Radar (SENSR) contract that will consolidate and modernize America's aging surveillance and air traffic control radars.

SENSR is a multi-agency program that includes the Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security. SENSR will replace current air traffic control and surveillance radars with fewer, more advanced multi-mission systems and release wireless spectrum for commercial use.

"SENSR will revolutionize our airspace radar infrastructure for reliable, more secure, enhanced situational awareness and communication," said Ralph Acaba, president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.
