A thermometer like no other
Raytheon Intelligence & Space is supplying Seek Thermal with uncooled thermal sensors for a temperature screening system, which is intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
AI assists with better battlefield intel
The Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node, or TITAN, could give frontline forces, as well as headquarter commanders, a resilient tactical ground station capable of rapidly sifting through massive amounts of incoming sensor data to find and track potential threats.
Laser comms that cuts through clouds
Raytheon Intelligence & Space has developed a new free-space optical communications receiver that plows through atmospheric distortions that sometimes disrupt the data.
FoXTEN fuses intel on the frontlines
Raytheon Intelligence & Space is offering the U.S. Army an intelligence system that combines cloud computing, commercial technology, and artificial intelligence with an easy-to-use and reliable interface. It’s called Force Multiplier Tactical Edge Node, or FoXTEN.
The ATLIS prototype will serve as a pathfinder for the future of one of NASA’s most enduring missions – land imaging. Since the 1970s, NASA’s LandSat program has cataloged the Earth’s ever-changing landscape from its morning orbit perch. But today, program managers are looking for ways to get more capability on orbit at a lower cost.
How women can rise in tech
Two female engineers at Raytheon Intelligence & Space present during virtual workshops in the "Women Impact Tech" event series to offer career advice.
A ‘USB’ for satellites
Raytheon Intelligence & Space engineers are pioneering new constellation management technology to control multiple satellites from a single ground station. The tech not only connects satellites to the ground, but also to one another.
Just like 'Top Gun'
The Identification Friend or Foe has run on Mode 4 since the 1960s. IFF Mode 5 significantly improves the ability to identify and track friendly aircraft, providing increased situational awareness to command and control and combat ID functions. Mode 5 improvements include new cryptography, stronger security features, modern signal modulation techniques and greater data content.
A coalition of the willing
BBN Technologies is working with a group of leading cryptographers, physicians, privacy experts, scientists and engineers across the technology industry and academia on a smartphone contact tracing app, which ensures privacy, to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
