On September 7, the U.S. Navy completed its third test of the new AN/SPY-6 (V) Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR). According to Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), during the Vigilant Talon flight test the radar searched for, detected, and simultaneously tracked a complex short-range ballistic missile and multiple air-to-surface cruise missile targets throughout their trajectories off the west coast of Hawaii. The AN/SPY-6 (V) AMDR is scheduled to be equipped on the Navy’s new Flight III Arleigh-Burke class guided missile destroyers.
