NASAMS - Norwegian Advanced Surface to Air Missile System
A Joint Venture between Raytheon and Thales Group, known as ThalesRaytheonSystems LLC, has been awarded a $45 million contract by the Norwegian Air Force for TPQ-36A radars upgrade.

The TPQ-36A air surveillance radar is the predecessor system to the AN/MPQ-64 Sentinel air defense radar, currently fielded within the US Army and four other nations.

The development and production program for the Norwegian Advanced Surface to Air Missile System, known as NASAMS II, will result in installation of upgrade kits for the TPQ-36A radars.

This upgrade will convert TPQ-36A into units similar to that of the most recent AN/MPQ-64 Sentinel, high mobile ground-based radar.

TPQ-36 Upgrade consists in installing a new transmitter power amplifier, receiver/exciter, signal/data processor and antenna motor controller.

All ThalesRaytheonSystems elements of the NASAMS II system will be accomplished over a 42-month period.
