Range Radar Replacement Program (RRRP)
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

DESCRIPTION

The Range Radar Replacement Program (RRRP) replaces outdated instrumentation radar systems at Aberdeen Test Center, Maryland; Redstone Test Center, Alabama; Yuma Test Center, Arizona; and White Sands Test Center, New Mexico. This effort responds to a need defined by the Army Test and Evaluation Command to improve range tracking instrumentation while eliminating obsolescence, stabilizing operation and sustainment costs, and improving mobility and remote operations.

RRRP Block I will satisfy the Test Capability Requirements Document (TCRD) addendum and bridge capability gaps to Block II. Block I Phase I includes a service life extension for FPS-16 (long-range, single object tracking radars). Block I Phase II includes medium-range, multiple object tracking radars (MPS-39), and short-range radars. Block I Phase III includes long range radars. Block II will completely satisfy TCRD requirements with long range radars.

BENEFIT TO THE SOLDIER

RRRP will provide the capability to test current and future Army weapon systems, providing critical test data to inform system development decisions and reducing the risk to operational forces prior to fielding.
