via PRNewswire

In October 2007 , the EQ-36 program completed a successful Preliminary Design Review and in March, the program successfully completed its Critical Design Review (CDR).

In November and December 2007 , a prototype EQ-36 radar, built by industry partner Syracuse Research under an Army Technology Objective, was tested in full 360-degree counter-fire mode against mortars and rockets at the U.S. Army's Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona . During the tests, which were specifically designed to evaluate the radar's ability to meet U.S. Army requirements, the EQ-36 prototype successfully located the firing positions of both rocket and mortar launchers in 360-degree mode. Live fire testing was conducted over a seven-day period without a single false alarm.

Headquartered in Bethesda, MD , Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
