Radar Open Systems Architecture

Maj. Gen. Edward Bolton Jr., Air Force Director of Space and Cyber Operations, and Brig. Gen. Ed Wilson, 45th Space Wing Commander, cut the ribbon for the new Radar Open Systems Architecture 0.134 radar, south of The Tides, with Col. Gary Henry, Launch and Range Systems Wing Commander, Space and Missile Systems Center. The first ROSA radar to be delivered to the Eastern or Western Range, it features a new transmitter and antenna feed, radar imaging capabilities, and quadruple the output power of its replaced legacy system. ROSA is part of a major modernization program to reduce costs of operations, maintenance and support, increase reliability, and shorten mission turnaround.
