Anaren Inc. in Syracuse, N.Y., has received a potential $97 million order from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems to provide RF beamforming assemblies needed to produce the U.S. Navy's new air and missile defense radar. Anaren officials say they obtained $31.5 million to support low-rate initial production of AN/SPY-6(V) AMDR shipboard radar systems designed for use on the DDG 51 Flight III Arleigh Burke-class destroyers. Work will occur at Anaren's facilities in New York, Colorado and New Hampshire. Anaren received $8.5 million from Raytheon in April 2014 to produce beam former technology as part of the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the AMDR program.
