Mission: Precision Targeting

Avoiding casualties. Reducing risk. Minimizing collateral damage. In a new era of warfare, our precision weapons are meeting the mission—hitting the target and nothing else.

Raytheon’s systems incorporate satellite navigation, laser guidance, high-definition radars, advanced seekers and other technologies. They allow customers to carry out discriminating strikes on bona fide targets and defend against incoming attacks with unprecedented effectiveness.

When near misses aren’t acceptable, Raytheon is precisely on target.
