The Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) conducted critical design readiness reviews (CDRR) on its final two prime items, Raytheon Co. [RTN] announced.
Those final items were the surveillance radar (SuR) and the communications and processing group (CPG). Both are key milestones in the Army program.
"The SuR and CPG [reviews] demonstrate the maturity of the design is where we need it to be and reaffirms our continued confidence that this critical cruise missile defense capability is on track to be provided to our warfighters," said Lt. Col. Stephen Willhelm, JLENS product manager in the Army program executive office for missiles and space.
"The JLENS team continues rapid and disciplined progress on schedule and within budget," said Pete Franklin, vice president with Raytheon national & theater security programs.
