The U.S. Navy awarded a $25-million contract to Saab Inc. on Sept. 25, 2020, for two AN/SPN-50(V)1 Shipboard Air Traffic Radars and one Installation and Checkout kit.
The next-generation air traffic radar will replace the AN/SPN-43C on board Nitmiz CVNs and LHDs. The first ship to install the radar will be USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) and followed by future amphibious assault ship Bougainville (LHA-8).
The new radar is based on the Sea Giraffe Agile Multi-Beam (AMB).
The first AN/SPN-50(V)1 is scheduled for delivery in September 2021.
