Raytheon’s Multi-Spectral Targeting System (MTS) family of sensor solutions provides superior detecting, ranging and tracking for military forces worldwide.
Raytheon MTS sensor milestones:
MTS-A integrates electro-optical, infrared, laser designation and laser illumination capabilities to provide superior detection, ranging and tracking for modern military forces. Combat proven and designed for growth, MTS-A variants are available to support domestic and international users in diverse missions spanning fixed-wing, rotary-wing and unmanned air vehicle platforms.
Designated the AN/AAS-52 by the U.S. military, its technology derived from earlier models of the AN/AAS-44 and provides a common framework for multiple variants.
Incorporating MTS-A capabilities, the MTS-B was specially adapted for high-altitude applications. It provides superior detection, ranging and tracking for the U.S. Air Force Predator B and allied military forces worldwide. MTS-B has expanded into the maritime domain, supporting applications such as broad area surveillance, search and rescue, as well as customs and border patrol operations.
Designated the AN/DAS-1 by the U.S. military, this technology has been fielded on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Guardian UAV and the Broad Area Maritime Surveillance mission.
Initially developed for the U.S. Army, Raytheon’s common sensor payload technology brings superior performance and cost efficiency to a variety of manned and unmanned platforms. The turreted EO/IR sensor includes an image intensified TV, a laser spot tracker, a laser designator, an eye-safe laser range finder, and a laser pointer.
Designated the AN/AAS-53 by the U.S. military, this technology is fielded by the U.S. Army on the Gray Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle.
This variant of the MTS-A multi-spectral targeting system is a multiuse electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) and laser detecting-ranging-tracking set developed for use by the U.S. Navy and Team Romeo — the industry team supporting the Navy’s offerings to international maritime helicopter users.
Designated the AN/AAS-44C(V)1 by the U.S. military, this multi-spectral targeting system is fielded on the MH-60R and MH-60S maritime helicopter platforms.
