Raytheon’s Day and Night Imaging Sensors to Serve U.S. Army

Raytheon is supplying day and night imaging sensor solutions to the U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq based on the Army contract worth $43 million. As part of the contract, the company will be delivering 57 Common Sensor Payload infrared and electro-optical sensing devices.

According to Tim Carey, vice president of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems, this Common Sensor Payload system is highly effective in its operation and provides economical solution to the U.S. military services, facilitating the soldiers with precise targeting capability, intense-resolution and complete-motion video performance. He added that this unique sensor can be widely deployed in different aircrafts, permitting the military personnel to precisely inspect  threats and potentially engage targets.

Raytheon has already delivered 28 demonstration and development systems to the U.S. Army, since the contract has been offered. This day and night surveillance sensor can be incorporated on rotary- and fixed-wing, manned, and unmanned aircrafts. Its initial Milestone C review has been successfully carried out by the U.S. Defense Acquisition System's Milestone Decision Authority, allowing its less-rate manufacture in the initial stages.
