Raytheon's powerful presence at the 2016 Farnborough International Airshow
Air and missile defense; precision weapons; advanced training and cybersecurity.
Raytheon, one of the biggest draws at the Farnborough International Airshow, is back this year with an even more powerful portfolio of futuristic technologies.
For the first time, visitors to the show near London are getting an up-close look at the new Patriot air and missile defense radar, which features a 360-degree field of view and cutting-edge gallium nitride technology that extends its range. They can fly a simulator of the T-100 training jet, work the controls of a missile-defense system and don virtual reality goggles to see Raytheon's airborne products in action.
A full-scale model of the T-100 aircraft is on display at the airshow corral near the pavilion of Raytheon's partner, Leonardo.
"Farnborough is the right showcase for the wide range of Raytheon innovations, across all domains, that are helping to make the world safer," said Thomas A. Kennedy, chairman and CEO of Raytheon. "This is where we can meet with our customers and demonstrate how we are developing strong defenses to meet evolving global threats."
Raytheon innovations on display include:
- Advanced weapons and other systems for the F-35 and other combat aircraft: Raytheon is providing the world's most advanced weapons and technology to deliver air dominance for the Joint Strike Fighter and other airborne platforms around the globe. Raytheon products and solutions are giving today's warfighters an unfair advantage in air combat and other missions.
- Interceptors and radars for Europe’s expanding missile defense shield: A world leader in missile defense, Raytheon is playing a critical role in the development and deployment of Europe's missile defense shield. From interceptors to radars and more, Raytheon's next-generation products and solutions are protecting Europe from the growing ballistic missile threat.
- The T-100 Integrated Air Training System: Raytheon is offering this system to meet the requirements of T-X, the U.S. Air Force's Advanced Pilot Training program competition..
- Special mission aircraft: Raytheon will showcase program and technology updates to the company's special mission aircraft, with a particular emphasis on the United Kingdom's Sentinel fleet and its contribution to recent U.K. military operations
- Cybersecurity: From our smartphones to the battlefield, we are all connected and, therefore, vulnerable to cyber risk. At Farnborough, Raytheon cyber engineers will demonstrate the company’s approach to cybersecurity in the modern, connected world -- from vulnerability assessments to cyber hardening, Converged Cyber™ solutions, platform modernization and active threat detection.
