PAVE PAWS deployed a far more efficient solid-state phased array technology, thereby eliminating mechanical radar components and the failure of those moving parts, and also the costly klystron transmitters at the BMEWS sites.
Working with our mission partner, the Missile Defense Agency, we are deploying the Upgraded Early Warning Radar system to both BMEWS and PAVE PAWS radars.
It was later determined that the powerful BMEWS radars had been receiving returns from the moon.
3) The PAVE PAWS and BMEWS early warning radars will be upgraded with new and modified radar hardware and software to implement improved algorithms.
Under the new consolidated 5-year contract, effective October 1, Raytheon will continue to operate all four SSPARS sites in the United States as well as the BMEWS site at Thule Air Base.
