Raytheon UK's Global Sensors
Raytheon UK’s Global Sensors provide state-of-the-art power electronics, mission systems, and optical technologies. Across air, land, sea and space, our technology offers soldiers and commanders situational awareness, command and control, and precision targeting, enhancing their protection and increasing their performance.
Our Global Sensors consist of four different areas of advanced technologies:
ADVANCED NAVIGATION SYSTEMS
Air Traffic Management Systems (ATMS)
Advanced Navigation Solutions comprise of two elements. The first is our world-leading Air Traffic Management Systems (ATMS). Our proven, innovative technology for both civil and military radar application is used globally to enhance air traffic surveillance and safely direct the world’s air traffic.
We are the only British manufacturer of civil radars and we are a major supplier of Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radar (MSSR) systems, such as our high-performing Condor Mk3. We also offer a wind farm mitigation solution that is able to eradicate the effect of wind turbines on air traffic control radar.
Assured Position Navigation and Timing (APNT)
The second element is Assured Position Navigation and Timing (APNT). We are a global leader in the development, production and supply of GPS anti-jamming systems to the majority of the world’s military forces, including the UK Ministry of Defence.
This allows the precise locations of military assets in real time. However, in battlefield and airborne operations, enemy countermeasures include the use of GPS-denial effects to disrupt and jam GPS. Our anti-jamming products protect this weak point in modern infrastructure systems, enabling the continued use of GPS in battlefield settings.
INTEGRATED POWER SOLUTIONS
Our integrated power solutions deliver leading performance – safety, high reliability, high-power density, low size and low weight – across military operating environments in air, land and maritime domains.
We offer a wide range of power subsystems and components for air, land and naval applications which include the UK’s AJAX Armoured Fighting Vehicle, the RAF’s Sentinel ISR aircraft; the US LAV-AT, HUMVEE, F-18, MK54 torpedo and Next Generation Naval Radars. The International Space Station also uses Raytheon UK high-performance power products.
ELCAN OPTICAL TECHNOLOGIES
We are a thought and technology leader in the global optics industry, specialising in the design and manufacture of optical solutions that meet strict military and commercial specifications.
