WASHINGTON — Raytheon has completed the first radar antenna array for the U.S. Army’s new missile defense radar in less than 120 days after being selected for the job, following a competition to replace the service’s Patriot air and missile defense system sensor.

The company won a contract to build the Lower-Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor, or LTAMDS, in October. The radar will become a part of the Service’s future Integrated Air and Missile Defense System that will replace the entire Patriot system. Raytheon also manufactures the Patriot.
