The Cobra Judy Replacement (CJR) program is responsible for the acquisition, of a single ship and associated equipment for worldwide radar data collection against ballistic missiles in flight. The CJR system will be turned over to the U.S. Air Force for operations and sustainment in 2013.

The CJR program replaces the capabilities of the current USNS Observation Island, its Cobra Judy radar suite and other mission systems. CJR will fulfill the same mission for foreign ballistic missile data collection in support of international treaty verification.

As part of the CJR program, PEO Ships managed the design and construction of the USNS Howard O. Lorenzen (T-AGM 25), a commercially designed and constructed ship. The ship is U.S. flagged and operated by a Military Sealift Command (MSC) civilian crew. Projected service life of the ship is 30 years. The ship was constructed at VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula, Miss. The mission equipment (ME) contract was awarded in December 2003 to Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems as the prime contractor responsible for the ME and shipboard integration. The ME consists of the X and S Band radars, a common back-end, mission communication suite and weather equipment.
