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.
Using 5G for command & control
A team at Raytheon Intelligence & Space is pioneering an approach that places the power of 5G technology in the hands of U.S. Air Force airmen around the world.
Shaping future Earth-observing sensors
Raytheon Intelligence & Space is building upon the success of the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, or MODIS, to develop the next generation of Earth-observing instruments.
Popping signals intelligence vendor lock
While military collection networks process petabytes of intelligence daily, these systems might find it difficult to keep pace in the future because of vendor lock and closed systems. An open-systems architecture approach could improve the military’s ability to meet future signals intelligence data needs.
UCF crowned NCCDC four-time champs
With four championship titles, the University of Central Florida, located in Orlando, now holds the record for the most No. 1 finishes at the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition.
Keeping UAVs away from the game
Raytheon Intelligence & Space's high-energy laser weapon system, or HELWS, uses electro-optical sensors that give operators a clear image of the target and track it. Once system operators identify the drone as a threat, with a simple push of a button, they can accurately aim the laser beam at their mark, bringing the drone down within seconds.
'Digital Thread' levels playing field
For new employees at Raytheon Intelligence & Space digital engineering can help level the playing field by providing everyone the same information at every point in a process. It also plays to the strengths of new engineers just entering the workforce—a generation of natural innovators who are eager to take part in developing disruptive technology.
