Interview with Nowa Technika Wojskowa
The NATO alliance recognizes that the threat to its populations, territory and forces posed by the proliferation of ballistic missiles is increasing. Since the Lisbon Declaration in 2010, the alliance has taken steps to defend against this rising threat.
Defence against short- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles is both feasible and proven. Today, Raytheon has taken the lead in the industry by developing integrated air and missile defence solutions that are evolutionary, affordable, supportable, and reliable. Stretching back more than twenty years, Raytheon has continually modernized its Patriot air and missile systems, SM-2 and SM-3 family of interceptors, the basis for an effective air defence shield protecting alliance populations, assets and infrastructure. No other missile has more successful test intercepts at high altitude and in space than the SM-3. But successful defence against ballistic missiles is more than just about interceptors.
Raytheon has excelled in covering all phases of missile defence from detection and tracking, to command and control and final engagement. Handling lower-tier air defence, systems such as Hawk XXI and National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) can intercept short-range ballistic and cruise missiles as well as fixed-wing threats. Its long-range radars, such as the AN/TPY-2 and AN/SPY-1, provide coverage on land and at sea, detecting and managing engagement of targets. NATO’s newly inaugurated Air Command & Control System (ACCS), the alliance’s first totally integrated sensor and communications network, was brought to fruition as a joint effort by ThalesRaytheonSystems, and plays a critical and central role in defending European NATO airspace. Of the Patriot missile system’s 12 global partner countries, five are NATO nations. Moreover, Raytheon has successfully integrated its air and missile defence technologies with a full range of current and emerging platforms and associated systems across all domains.
As a reliable, long-term partner to alliance governments and industries, Raytheon has an unsurpassed track record in working with customers to further local industry and expertise. International missile programs that have been successful European and Japanese joint endeavours include Patriot, RAM, ESSM, and SM-3 Block II. The company is committed to building the industrial base and boosting jobs wherever it does business.
