The first radar system will be shipped in March 2021 and installed by NAV CANADA in April.

“We have been supplying radar systems to NAV CANADA since 1959, and MSSRs since the 1980s," said John Gallagher, managing director, Weapons & Sensors, Raytheon UK. "The more advanced Condor Mk3 was designed and developed by Raytheon UK engineers in Harlow, Essex, England and will be manufactured at our facility in Glenrothes, Scotland, helping to sustain 70 jobs in Harlow and 20 jobs in Glenrothes over the next 15 years.”

Condor Mk3 MSSR is an innovative, new, low-cost, high-probability detection radar which brings together native state-of-the-art surveillance technologies to provide cutting-edge, reliable, secondary radar system hardware to air traffic operators around the world.

Additional features have been included in the system such as automatic adaptive power control, fully configurable software, a high-duty cycle transmitter and built-in ADS-B, all in a much smaller footprint.

“NAV CANADA has a long history of working with Raytheon and looks forward to the next chapter in our ongoing relationship,” said Warren Gosselin, director CNS Solutions, NAV CANADA. “The previous generation of Raytheon radars have been a stable backbone of our operation, and we expect the latest generation to continue that robust service.”
