Description: The Highly Adaptable Multi-Mission Radar (HAMMR) is a derivative of the Ground Based Fighter Radar (GBFR) intended to provide the US Army with counter-rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) and air defense capabilities while on-the-move. The GBFR program was launched in 2009. HAMMR features a compact, lightweight ground configuration that employs active electronically scanned array (AESA) antenna technology from airborne fighter aircraft. The radar provides 360-degree coverage while mounted and moving on a vehicle and is easily deployable from a variety of expeditionary platforms such as Humvee tactical vehicles. The HAMMR was successfully demonstrated on behalf of the US Army in October 2011 at Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona.
The new radar system if finally deployed with the US Army could be a key item in irregular warfare environments. The AESA radar antenna is composed of more than a thousand programmable transmit/receive modules. HAMMR is capable of successfully detecting, tracking and engaging numerous target types, at multiple positions, and in varying paths and trajectories.
