Our cutting-edge digital radar warning receiver technology delivers accurate, timely detection of unseen threats. The ALR-69A(V) digital radar warning receiver was selected by Boeing to provide the KC-46 Tanker with greater situational awareness resulting in significantly increased aircrew survivability. The ALR-67(V)3 is currently in production for the U.S. Navy F/A-18E/F. Our ALR-69A(V), now in development for the U.S. Air Force, is targeted for initial use on AC/MC-130 and F-16 aircraft. Both systems deliver improved detection range, unambiguous threat identification and compatibility with other onboard systems.
Among pilots, our ALE-50 towed decoy is renowned for its proven ability to lure approaching missiles to the decoy — greatly increasing survivability. We also offer fiber-optic decoys that use proven aerodynamic properties and towline technology, as well as solutions to thwart the infrared threat. In combat, our airborne decoys perform like no other.
The Miniature Air Launched Decoy (MALD®) is a state-of-the-art, low-cost flight vehicle that is modular and programmable. It weighs less than 300 pounds and has a range of approximately 500 nautical miles. MALD protects aircraft and their crews by duplicating the combat flight profiles and signatures of U.S. and allied aircraft.
The current and emerging environment is challenging, with adversaries who quickly adapt using commercially available products and sophisticated military systems. Raytheon is meeting the demands of the complex, rapidly changing battlespace with open, modular and scalable EW solutions that operate on airborne, ground vehicle and dismounted platforms.
We have a long history of multiplatform EW product development, including proven products such as CEASAR, the AN/ALQ-128 warning system, Trailblazer, and various systems on the Compass Call and EA-18G platforms. We offer fully integrated EW suites with powerful situational awareness and jamming capabilities, providing protection against anti-aircraft missiles and threats from enemy radars. Our EW products give our customers the ability to successfully dominate the electromagnetic spectrum.
Operating across the electromagnetic spectrum in frequencies from UHF to K, PEGASUS provides the tactical commander with a comprehensive, real-time picture of the battlespace. A next-generation family of systems, PEGASUS is designed for electronic support measures and electronic intelligence applications. These compact, lightweight and efficient systems offer high precision direction finding, geolocation, parametric measurement analysis and reporting of electronic signals from conventional and modern emitters, such as radar, under the most challenging conditions.
Raytheon's Electronic Warfare Battle Management (EWBM) solutions provide an enhanced Command and Control capability that enables electronic warfare officers to plan and execute their missions in a fully interoperable and collaborative environment, in a way never experienced within today's fight. We have long history in EW on a variety of platforms and have delivered successful products such as Compass Call, EA-18G, CEASAR, ALQ-128, and Trailblazer.
Increasingly complex threats require airborne electronic attack to be more sophisticated than ever, providing greater precision, power, speed and directivity. Raytheon's Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) will integrate the most advanced electronic attack technology into the EA-18G to ensure superior mission performance. This dependable and affordable system will deny, degrade and disrupt threats while protecting U.S. and coalition forces.
The High Speed Anti-Radiation Missile (HARM) suppresses or destroys surface-to-air missile radars, early warning radars and radar-directed air defense artillery systems. Raytheon has completed testing on an upgrade, called the HARM Control Section Modification (HCSM). HCSM adds a GPS receiver and an improved inertial measurement unit for precision navigation. HCSM also features a digital flight computer that merges targeting solutions from navigation and seeker systems. The enhancements improve the probability of hit, while controlling where the missile can and cannot fly.
MALD-J is the jammer variant of the basic decoy, and the first ever stand-in jammer to enter production. The unmanned MALD-J navigates and operates much closer than conventional EW to the victim radar when jamming the electronics, allowing aviators and aircraft to stay out of harm’s way. And, it is able to loiter in the target area for an extended time period – plenty of time to complete the mission.
MALD-J can operate alone or in pairs, but is designed to work with and leverage other electronic warfare platforms.
Raytheon provides proven electronic support and countermeasure protection for U.S. Navy and its international counterparts. In operation since the 1980s, the AN/SLQ-32(V) shipboard EW system provides early warning, identification and direction finding capability for simultaneous multiple threats. Raytheon recently teamed with Lockheed Martin to compete for the U.S. Navy’s Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 3 program. SEWIP Block 3 will upgrade the fleet’s capability to electronically attack anti-ship missiles with the AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic warfare system.
