TSS Solutions, a defence electronics engineering and manufacturing company focused on the repair, upgrade, operations, maintenance, and leasing of radar systems, announced the award of a contract through the Defense Logistics Agency with U.S. Navy’s Program Executive Office Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) Program Management Warfare Office (PMW 740). This contract will deliver a completely modernized radar system for the FAE. The face value of the contract is $11.7 million dollars with a period of performance ending in September 2025.

TSS is providing a completely upgraded and modernized AN/TPS-43 radar system, labelled the TSS Integrated Ground-Based Air Radar (TIGAR). The TIGAR radar is equipped with TSS designed and integrated, state-of-the-art subsystems that deliver significantly improved performance, reliability, and operability over the current AN/TPS series of radar systems. “TSS has added a significant number of emerging technology upgrades to the TPS-43 radar system that greatly improves the air surveillance detection, tracking and classification for our partner nations. Our radar depot in Melbourne, FL enables cost-effective technology insertions that greatly extend the service life of air surveillance radar systems and our field service teams conduct the installation and training required to assist our defence partners. Having completed upgrades of the TPS-70 and TPS-75 for the U.S. Air Force, this award further reinforces TSS as the leader in technically refreshing legacy radar systems and allows us to continue supporting our global defence customer base. We are pleased to have been chosen to deliver a powerful new radar system to the Ecuadorian Air Force that will provide a long-range air picture that detects, tracks, and automatically classifies the full threat spectrum,” said Don DiFrisco, President, and CEO.
