Thailand becomes the 34th Asia Pacific region country to deploy Lockheed Martin's long range radar
When the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) activated its new TPS-77 radar recently, it greatly expanded the Thailand’s long-range air surveillance network capability. In particular, the radar helps provide greater air sovereignty, security and safety over much of the Gulf of Thailand.
With this direct commercial sale and installation now successfully completed, Thailand became the owner of the 34th Lockheed Martin long-range radar operational in the Asia Pacific region. Thailand joins countries such as Korea, Taiwan and Australia, who have relied on Lockheed Martin’s family of 3-D, solid-state, L-band surveillance radars for decades.
