program is a single material solution for the Multi-Mode Radar
System and Ground Weapons Locator Radar requirements. It is
structured as an evolutionary acquisition consisting of four
blocks of incremental development and production, referred to
as Increments I through IV. Each block builds upon the capabilities
of the preceding increments in an additive fashion.
Increment I supports two distinct mission
areas: Short range air defense and air surveillance.
Increment II will address the Marine Expeditionary
Force counter fire/targeting missions.
Increment III will incorporate tactical enhancements
of the air mission requirements, including Mode 5/S identification
friend or foe, decoy/electronic counter-counter measures capabilities,
an advanced RES, a non-cooperative target recognition, sensor
netting, and an integration data environment capability.
Increment IV will address support of air traffic
