    The U.S. Army took delivery of its first Non-Recurring Engineering Enhanced AN/TPQ-36 Counterfire Target Acquisition (EQ-36) Radar System, built by Lockheed Martin.

    Delivery of the EQ-36 radar followed live-fire tests against indirect fire from mortars, artillery and rockets from a simulated enemy. The first operational EQ-36 system was delivered 30 months after the Army awarded Lockheed Martin the $120 million design and development contract for five systems. Twelve more systems are on the way - the Army exercised a contract option in June and then accelerated the delivery. All EQ-36 systems should be delivered by fall 2010.
