Facilities and infrastructure development for an advanced S-Band phased array radar for the Space Fence programme.

Through advanced solutions and independent approaches, Wood helps customers reimagine the possible to deliver some of the world’s smartest innovations. In early 2015, Wood began designing facilities and infrastructure for the Space Fence Radar System – the largest ground-based radar of its type ever constructed.

The Space Fence programme, a new advanced ground-based S-Band phased array radar system, will revolutionise the way the US detects and tracks more than 200,000 orbiting objects in space and increase the ability to protect assets in space by preventing space-based collisions. The project is an upgrade to the existing Air Force Space Surveillance System installed in the early 1960s.

Wood’s extensive engineering and construction expertise has been leveraged from across the globe to support the Lockheed Martin team in making their vision possible, including design of radar array buildings, mechanical buildings, operations buildings, power generation plants and site work.
