Lockheed wins radar contract from Thailand

The Royal Thai Air Force has awarded a contract to Lockheed Martin in Salina to make a long-range air surveillance radar that will complete a multi-phase national air defense system for Thailand.

The TPS-77 will be installed and operational in 2009. The transportable radar provides continuous, high-quality 3-D surveillance on aircraft targets at ranges to 250 nautical miles.

The company declined to reveal the contract's dollar amount, citing competitive reasons. This is Lockheed Martin's first direct commercial sale to the government of Thailand.
