Raytheon wins U.S. Army Air Soldier System contract

Raytheon has won an award valued at $4.7 million from the U.S. Army for Engineering and Manufacturing Development of the Personal Electronics Computer and Display System in support of the Air Soldier System.

The Air Soldier System is the next generation of the Air Warrior System, a U.S. Army rotary-wing air crew ensemble featuring wearable electronics that enhance life support and tactical capabilities.

Under the contract, Raytheon will design, develop and qualify three of the six components in the suite of Integrated Personal Electronics for the next generation of the Air Soldier System. These components include the Soldier Computer Module, the main processing and storage unit for the system; the Personal Display Module, the user interface for the system and display for dismounted activities; and the Mission Display Module, a mounted display for mission and navigation information. Raytheon has more than 10 years of experience supporting the Air Soldier customer through the PM Air Warrior Electronic Data Manager, GPS Message Router and Interactive Situational Awareness System product lines.

“Among other developments, the Air Soldier System will be lighter, last longer and provide more integrated controls,” said John Harris, president of Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC, a subsidiary of Raytheon. “This translates to enhanced situational awareness that better supports the mission.”
