Oct 17 (Reuters) - Weapons maker Raytheon Co has been selected to provide the U.S. Army with a new radar for its Patriot air and missile defense system, the company said on Thursday.
The radar, known as Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS), will replace the current Patriot radars, also made by Raytheon.
Raytheon said it would receive more than $384 million in proceeds from the army to deliver six production representative units of the LTAMDS. (Reporting by Dominic Roshan K.L. in Bengaluru)
