Missile Defense

Mission: Global Defense

Protecting our homeland. Defending our allies. Safeguarding trade. Our air and missile defense systems have one mission: providing peace of mind.

Raytheon's proven interceptors, radars and space sensors work together to provide protection against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, aircraft and other threats.

Thirteen countries rely on Global Patriot Solutions for air and missile defense. Our SM-3® missile and Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle defeat warheads while they’re still in space. Our JLENS aerostats provide regional defense from 10,000 feet for 30 days at a time. And our long-range radars keep watch around the clock, from windswept stations in Alaska to ships in the Persian Gulf.

It’s a big sky up there, but we’ve got it covered. That’s our mission.
