Visitors to Raytheon’s pavilion will also learn about:
The Paveway™ family of laser-only and dual-mode GPS/laser-guided bombs, which has revolutionized tactical air-to-ground warfare and has grown to be the trusted weapon of choice for 43 international customers. Paveway™ laser-guided bomb kits comprised the majority of air-to-ground, precision-guided weapons used in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Unified Protector in Libya.
Maverick, a versatile, precision-guided missile that is effective against a wide variety of fixed, stationary, moving and maneuvering targets both on land and sea. With more than 7,800 launched in combat, Maverick is employed by the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and allied nations on more than 25 types of aircraft.
National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile, part of Raytheon’s integrated air and Missile defense portfolio. NASAMS works seamlessly with the Patriot Air and Missile Defense System and the Hawk Air Defense system.
ALR-69A(V), the world's first all-digital radar warning receiver (RWR). It features capabilities previously unattainable in a tactical warning receiver: suppression of enemy air defenses, easy cross-platform integration and enhanced spectral and spatial coverage for high-sensitivity detection in dense signal environments.
Multi-Spectral Targeting System, a family of sensor solutions that provides superior detecting, ranging and tracking for military forces worldwide. Raytheon has integrated the system on everything from C-130 planes to MH-60 helicopters and the Reaper unmanned aircraft.
