Whether the threats are from small aircraft, missiles or swarming boats, Raytheon’s defense systems shield naval assets. View Naval Mission Defense Systems brochure.

Naval Mission Defense Systems
Our layered naval defense solutions use integrated sensors (radar, infrared, etc.), command and control, and lethal and nonlethal weapons systems for international patrol vessel, corvette and frigate markets. We assemble expert team members from firms around the world to help you complete your mission.

Coastal Interdiction
We offer solutions to protect and enhance the missions of coastal patrol vessels. Acoustic hailers and other nonlethal options enhance law enforcement missions. Lethal options, including enhanced gun performance, protect ships when they are in harm’s way. 

Maritime Security
Navies protect economic security on the ocean and preserve national sovereignty of the seas by preventing smuggling, poaching, terrorism and peer nation threats. We focus on defending these ships to ensure mission success and protect high-value economic zones. 

Force Protection
We outfit corvettes, frigates, destroyers and cruiser class ships with systems to engage a variety of threats, including:

  • Aircraft, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), rockets, guided bombs and missiles.
  • Surface warfare against large and small ships, including swarming boats.
  • Warfare against submarines, mines and other threats below the surface.

Raytheon’s layered defense systems protect from close, medium and long range threats.

Integrated Layered Defense
We protect local to large areas with the force needed to defend the mission. Raytheon designs multiple layers of naval defense and overlaps those layers to provide the broadest possible defense. These layers deter threats, mitigate vulnerabilities, and minimize the consequence of attacks.

Our weapons systems feature:

  • Sensors: Using radar, infrared, electro-optical and other types of sensors to provide accurate data to identify and engage threats quickly and effectively.
  • Command and Control: Tracking, assessment and weapon engagement decisions must be made quickly from the time of detection. Raytheon’s solutions are designed to provide multi-sensor integration for: 
    • Enhanced situational awareness.
    • Expedited detect-to-engage sequences.
    • Identification and evaluation of threats.
    • Readiness assessment.
    • Execution of specific tactical procedures.
  • Effectors: Employing a suite of lethal and nonlethal self-defense weapons systems meets threats at multiple stages of engagement.

Mission Support
Integrated weapon system management centers provide training, logistics and support across your portfolio of systems. These local centers ensure fast support in your country to ensure mission success.
