Delivering with digital engineering
Digital engineering is enabling engineers at Raytheon Intelligence & Space to deliver products to the customer faster and better. Using realistic modeling and simulation, digital engineering saves time and money by exposing potential problems and identifying opportunities to deliver products faster.
Crowdsourcing weather forecasts
An improved weather forecasting system could raise the alarm sooner to extreme weather events, helping save lives, send people to shelters and protect property. Raytheon Intelligence & Space will soon deliver a system that could give citizens the advance warning they need to protect life and limb.
Optics with pinpoint accuracy
Raytheon ELCAN, a Raytheon Technologies subsidiary, know that microns matter when it comes to their optical systems. That’s why the company invests in partnerships, and research and development in improving its optical systems’ preciseness so that it can help customers see better and farther, even from miles above the Earth.
Landing fighters with precision
The Joint Precision Approach and Landing System was recently deployed for the first time on two international aircraft carriers: the Italian ITS Cavour and the UK’s HMS Queen Elizabeth. Both deployment tests were successful, and the inclusion of JPALS supports both navies to safely land their F-35s on deck in even the most severe conditions.
Keeping 4th-generation fighters relevant
Raytheon Intelligence & Space is helping keep fourth-generation fighters like the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornets, Hornets and EA-18G Growlers operationally relevant for decades to come, thanks to upgrades like the company's Gallium Nitride Active Electronically Scanned Array radar, or GaN AESA radar.
How AI can alter multi-domain warfare
Artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies could create powerful agents operating within systems and across the Defense Department’s Joint All Domain Command and Control network, or JADC2, a future command and control network that will link capabilities and military platforms across the globe in all domains – air, land, sea, cyber and space.
Space: Where every ounce counts
Reducing size, weight, power consumption and cost, or SWaP-C, without sacrificing performance is the ultimate goal when designing and manufacturing opto-mechanical sub-systems for space. Raytheon ELCAN is speeding the process of reaching this goal by using digital engineering principles, modeling the systems before they're physically manufactured.
How a laser defeats hostile drones
Raytheon Intelligence & Space have developed a High-Energy Laser Weapons System that can defeat hostile, small drones that could be rigged with explosives or conduct surveillance, collecting intelligence on friendly forces. But how does it work?
‘Agile’ mindset allows team to run
Deana Taylor, a Raytheon Intelligence & Space senior program manager, employs Agile engineering principles, which are producing fast-turn results on an advanced program called TAS.
