Intelligence Surveillance Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance
Multi-Intelligence is the first line of defense
Raytheon’s ISTAR is a multi-intelligence aircraft that uses artificial intelligence, integrated onboard sensors and advanced processing to provide critical information to military and civilian air and ground crews.
The ISTAR aircraft helps crews:
• Track mobile ground targets
• Map natural disaster areas
• Monitor vessels to enforce maritime embargos
• Monitor activities near borders and littoral areas
Raytheon is the first company to deploy an international ISTAR-type aircraft through the United Kingdom’s Sentinel program. The Sentinel aircraft and ground stations operated by the Royal Air Forces 5th and 54th squadrons have been in use since 2007.
