"Quickly assess the battlespace through real-time situational knowledge"
The Raytheon Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisiton-Mission Equipment Package (RSTA-MEP) program provides the capability to quickly assess the battlespace through real-time situational knowledge provided by long range on-board thermal sensors and off-board sensors.
Technological advancements in the sensors and software provide for a wide-area-search (WAS) capability, automatic target detection (ATD), and aided target recognition (AiTR). ATD and AiTR can automatically detect stationary or moving targets beyond the enemy's engagement range and provide a wealth of data to the crew including target bearing, elevation, range, classification, and priority.
The RSTA-MEP leverages and extends the capability of the U.S. Army FBCB2 through sensor fusion of the on-board sensor data providing the crew with a common relevant operating picture of friendly and enemy forces.
Additionally, commercial and military electro-optical thermal sensors are integrated to provide driving capability during hours of darkness and a local 360-degree local security capability.
