Description: The AN/FPN-67 is a modern, solid-state, reliable, ground-based, precision approach radar in a fixed-shelter (or integrated with the ATNAVICS system) capable of coverage for up to 6 predetermined runway approaches. It uses the X-band for the precision approach.
The FPN-67 has been selected by the US Army to replace existing fixed-position AN/FPN-40 precision approach radar system. The FPN-67 is highly reliable, ease of maintenance, and low life cycle costs.
In August 2006, the US Army awarded Raytheon a contract having a potential value of $200 million for the procurement of the AN/TPN-31 Air Traffic Navigation, Integration and Coordination System (ATNAVICS) and the AN/FPN-67 Fixed-Base Precision Approach Radar (FBPAR). The US Army signed for 30 ATNAVICS and 9 FBPAR systems over the five-year contract while the US Navy and the US Marine Corps signed for 12 ATNAVICS for Marine Expeditionary Force use.
