Multi-Spectral Targeting System (MTS)
See Further. Track Longer. Aim Smarter.
Raytheon's Multi-Spectral Targeting System (MTS) provides electro-optical/ infrared (EO/IR), laser designation, and laser illumination capabilities integrated in a single sensor package.
Combat proven, with nearly three million operational flight hours, MTS sensors provide detailed intelligence data from the visual and infrared spectrum in support of U.S. military, civilian and allied missions around the world.
Leveraging cutting edge digital architecture, this advanced EO/IR system provides long-range surveillance, target acquisition, tracking, rangefinding and laser designation for the Griffin and Paveway missiles as well as all tri-service and NATO laser-guided munitions. MTS sensors feature multiple fields of view, electronic zoom and multimode video tracking and were designed to incorporate future growth options and performance enhancements.
To date, Raytheon has delivered nearly 3,000 MTS sensors to U.S. and international armed forces and successfully integrated 44 variants of the system on more than 20 rotary-wing, Unmanned Aerial System, and fixed-wing platforms – including the MH-60 Blackhawk, the C-130 Hercules, the MQ-9C Reaper, the MQ-1 Predator, and the MQ-1C Gray Eagle.
