Lurking deep beneath the vast cover of the world's oceans, threats like mines, submarines and unmanned undersea vehicles are proliferating. These hazards hinder the security of nations, their militaries and vital trade routes.

While enemy militiaries are often the source of these threats, terrorists are also capable of executing highly disruptive attacks that can impact critical assets.

Raytheon delivers a portfolio of integrated undersea warfare solutions – including anti-submarine and mine warfare – that helps the U.S. and allied naval fleets detect, deter, and defend against a variety of threats.

Undersea Sensors
