The U.S. Navy has placed an order for Saab AN/SPN-50(V) 1 shipboard air traffic radars.
The contract covers production and delivery of three AN/SPN-50(V) 1 shipboard air traffic radars, and one installation and checkout kit for the Navy.
Work will be performed in Syracuse, New York, and is expected to be completed in December 2022.
The SPN-50 system supports the deployment, sustainment and operation of aviation assets by providing aircraft position, radar signal, and weather data. Air traffic controllers use this data for air traffic control services, such as aircraft sequencing and separation, airspace identification and containment, safety alerts, traffic advisories, and landing guidance.
