According to a new report from Reuters, Japan will select Lockheed Martin’s Long Range Discrimination Radar for its two planned Aegis Ashore installations. The report suggests, that the decision was made ahead of a planned August budget request, and goes on to cite a Defense Ministry official directly familiar with the decision.

According to the report Lockheed Martin were competing with Raytheon’s SPY-6 radar system.

Reuters says, Japan has been seeking to bolster its missile defense as North Korea barges ahead with its missile development program, despite a recent easing in tension in the run-up to, and aftermath of, a meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump.
