Raytheon awarded dismount detection radar for U.S. Air Force

Raytheon has been awarded a contract to produce four radar pods with ground moving target indication and synthetic aperture radar technology for the U.S. Air Force. The radar will be mounted under the wings of MQ-9 Reaper aircraft.

The dismount detection radar will deliver accurate information in adverse weather, day and night, for U.S. Air Force intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. Raytheon will also produce and deliver ground stations.

“Our dismount detection radar is an example of the innovative, scalable surveillance and targeting solutions we develop to meet our customers’ most complex needs,” said Mark Sims, director of Strategy and Business Development for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems at Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems business. “Raytheon remains committed to providing quality products to support the surveillance mission of the men and women in the U.S. Air Force.”

“The dismount detection radar will help soldiers, intelligence analysts and commanders in the field make critical decisions,” said Col. David Hiltz, then Chief Aerial Ground Surveillance Systems Division for the U.S. Air Force. “This innovative radar represents a true team effort between government and industry.”

With increased resolution, range and coverage capabilities, the dismount detection radar offers persistent radar detection to find and track potential threats to warfighters, including vehicles and individuals in near real-time, day and night.

Raytheon also develops the multispectral targeting electro-optical infrared system for use by the U.S. Air Force on the Predator unmanned aircraft.
