Raytheon Company has delivered the first Configuration-3 radar set to Taiwan. The upgrade was completed 11 months ahead of the original program plan requested by the Taiwan Air Force.
"As a trusted partner of the Taiwan Air Force, we continue to deliver on our commitments, providing improved capability that ensures the success of Taiwan's air defense mission," said Sanjay Kapoor, vice president for Patriot Programs at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS). "The investments we made to achieve the program schedule acceleration benefit all Patriot customers - the US and our 11 international partners - who have selected the combat-proven Patriot as the foundation of their air and missile defense strategy."
Raytheon IDS is the prime contractor for both domestic and international Patriot Air and Missile Defense Systems and system integrator for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles.
