Missile Defense Agency

Fiscal Year 2008 (FY08) Budget Estimates Overview Approved for Public Release 07-MDA-2175 (31 JAN 07)

[EXCERPTS]

We successfully deployed the first AN/TPY-2 (formerly known as the forward-based X band radar, or FBX-T) and supporting C2BMC equipment to Shariki Air Base in Japan, achieving partial mission capability on October 30, 2006... The current location of the AN/TPY-2 at Shariki is an interim site until construction can be completed for the permanent site. Three additional AN/TPY-2 radars will also be delivered to the warfighter to provide forward-based sensor coverage against possible launches from critical threat locations.

The forward placement of the AN/TPY-2 radar provides information early in the flight of a potential ballistic missile launch and helps discriminate threat RVs from associated countermeasures.

Block 2008. Fielding:

  • Two additional Forward-Based X-Band Radars (AN/TPY-2);

Block 2010. Development:

  • GMD efforts will include an enhanced flight and testing program for additional Engagement

Sequence Groups, including the capability to launch or engage a Ground-Based Interceptor on sensor data provided by a AN/TPY-2;

Block 2012. Fielding:

  • Adjunct radar to use in conjunction with the AN/TPY-2 forward-based X-band radars.
