Wasn't there a 2 face version planned at one time? Also fascinating to read that RTN didn't bid.

HDR-P will have multiple array faces; I only recall seeing HDR-H depictions with a single face.

Thanks! I had confused HDR-H with HDR-P from those slides.

HDR-H rendering from Lockheed's release.

***In the original version of this release, Lockheed Martin published a rendering of the Homeland Defense Radar Hawaii (HDR-H).
Lockheed Martin was not authorized by the Missile Defense Agency to publish the rendering, and it should not be considered
an accurate representation of the final project. The future site of HDR-H has not been chosen. The rendering has been removed
and Lockheed Martin regrets the error.***

Bumped into the above while looking for the local power plant output requirements for HDR-H (18 MWe) vs. LRDR (28 MWe).

Would make a nice mobile IRBM/ BGV carrier too.
"DARPA Hard"  It ain't what it use to be.

I had much the same thought.

Could prove quite handy indeed the way things are going.
