GhostEye® MR is an advanced medium-range air and missile defense radar, unveiled in October 2021.

Made by Raytheon Missiles & Defense, GhostEye MR is a 360-degree surveillance and fire control sensor designed to detect, track and identify a wide variety of threats. Among them: cruise missiles and drones, fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft.

GhostEye MR also helps to counter sophisticated long-range mass attacks. It is adaptable to multiple missions: integrated air and missile defense, counter-UAS and defense of critical infrastructure, such as air bases.

GhostEye MR integrates with NASAMS

While GhostEye MR can operate as a standalone radar, it is also seen as a future sensor for the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System, or NASAMS™, a highly adaptable mid-range air defense solution. Raytheon Missiles & Defense has produced and supported the NASAMS system in partnership with Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace for more than 30 years.

GhostEye MR can integrate with NASAMS. This radar will provide increased range and altitude coverage that will expand the defended-area capabilities of NASAMS. GhostEye MR's extended range also maximizes the capabilities of the family of Raytheon Missiles & Defense effectors employed by NASAMS, including the Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile Extended Range variant, or AMRAAM®-ER.

Part of the GhostEye family of radars

As the latest sensor in the GhostEye® family of radars, GhostEye MR leverages commonality with the Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor, or LTAMDS, that Raytheon Missiles & Defense is building for the U.S. Army. LTAMDS is the first in Raytheon's GhostEye family of radars.

Both sensors share a baseline of advanced technologies, including active electronically scanned array, or AESA – which boosts detection, targeting and tracking – and military-grade gallium nitride, or GaN – which strengthens the radar signal and enhances its sensitivity for longer range, higher resolution and increased capacity.

Plus, the open architecture design of LTAMDS and GhostEye MR enables technology adaptations to counter new and evolving threats, so that nothing goes unseen.
