Description: Dual Band Radar (DBR) is an active phased array radar system encompassing an X-band multi-functional radar known as AN/SPY-3 and an S-band Volume Search Radar (VSR) in a complementary manner to provide surveillance, target tracking and engagement support capabilities superior to those of conventional single-band radars. It is being developed for the US Navy's DD(X)/DDG1000 destroyer program with Raytheon acting as the prime contractor and Lockheed Martin as subcontractor.
The AN/SPY-3 is an active phased array X-band, multifunctional horizon search and fire control radar provided as the X-band radar for the DBR. It is anticipated that the SPY-3 radar system will combine the functions of more than five separate radar systems aboard current US Navy fighting ships.
The DBR/SPY-3 radar system meets the requirements for low radar cross section, reduced manning, and low maintenance and service life costs. Its development began in 1999 and the first prototype was delivered to the US Navy in 2003.
In addition to DDG1000 Zumwalt-class destroyers, the DBR radar system will be installed on the CVN-21/CVN-78 aircraft carrier class and next generation amphibious landing ships.
