Description: The United States (US) Navy's Enterprise Air Surveillance Radar (EASR) is a research program intended to deliver a replacement for the SPS-48 and SPS-49 air surveillance radars currently on board US Navy amphibious ships and aircraft carriers. In November 2013 the Office of Naval Research (ONR) awarded Northrop Grumman an 18-month contract for the study of the EASR requirement. The new radar system will leverage technologies from the AN/TPS-80 Ground /Air Task-Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) program. The radar replacement might be ready for service on board US Navy ships by the end of this decade (2010s) or early next one (2020s). The Raytheon proposal was based upon scaled down SPY-6 radar technology utilizing Radar Modular Assembly (RMA) approach. As of March 2015 the US Navy expected the new radar system to become operational on the USS Kennedy and the LHA 8 beginning in 2023 and 2021 respectively. Raytheon was selected to develop the EASR radar in two variants for several US Navy applications.

The AN/SPY-6(V)2 variant is a scaled SPY-6 radar based upon a single face rotating array radar arrangement to provide anti-air and anti-surface warfare, electronic protection and air traffic control capabilities. The AN/SPY-6(V)2 is intended for the LHA 8 amphibious assault ship and Nimitz class aircraft carriers with first deliveries slated for 2021.
