Raytheon's Missile Elevated Netted Sensors Complete 14-Day Endurance Tests Successfully

Raytheon has declared that its aerostat system, Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Elevated Netted Sensors (JLENS) have completed a 14-day endurance test at the Utah Training and Test Range, successfully. With this, JLENS is officially ready for deployment.

During the 14-day period, the sensors tracked more than 1,000 targets over a large area. The JLENS has been mainly designed for the detection, tracking and support of cruise missiles and other aircrafts. The system has the capability to detect missiles in both land and sea and can stay airborne for up to 30 h at a stretch. The system comes with two aerostats measuring 74 m and can be raised up to 10,000 ft. Each of the aerostats has the capability to integrate with other sensors and communication systems. Apart from this, one of the aerostats consists of surveillance radar that can cover land and sea areas at 360°. Another aerostat has fire control radar to provide more protection. Raytheon has been conducting tests to ascertain various aspects of JLENS and according to David Gulla who is the VP for Global Integrated Sensors at Raytheon Integrated Defence Systems the success of this test will make the JLENS systems a critical part of the air and missile defence mission as a whole.
