Raytheon solutions exist in all domains and across all missions. This has never been truer than when looking at Raytheons Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) capabilities. On display at this weeks National Space Symposium, Raytheons interactive demo for its IAMD capabilities allows users to quickly gather accurate program information on Raytheon products and systems. The demo also includes several threat scenarios and highlights how Raytheon capabilities aid in the detection and mitigation of those threats.
The demo also clearly illustrates the necessity of IAMD assets in Space which features the Space Tracking and Surveillance System and Precision Tracking Space System. The two experimental STSS satellites built by Northrop Grumman around a Raytheon sensor suite have performed well in tests including birth to death tracking, autonomous handover between sensors and satellites and providing engagement quality track data to the BMDS. MDA has commissioned Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory to develop two satellites for the next version of the BMDS space layer called PTSS (Precision Tracking Space System). PTSS will provide tracking of ballistic missiles enabling simultaneous homeland, regional, and theater missile defense.
