Chasing twisters with new radar
Purdue University and University of Massachusetts Amherst students chase tornados in the Midwest in June 2019, using Raytheon Intelligence & Space's Skyler radar to study the genesis of severe storms.
Delivering on the promise of graphene
Raytheon Intelligence & Space spearheaded a research project in collaboration with academia to discover the most effective way to detect microwave radiation by using a bolometer. The microwave radiation sensor is 100,000 times more sensitive than existing sensors today.
Modernizing Future Vertical Lift
Raytheon Intelligence & Space is developing a suite of multi-function, precision targeting, long-range surveillance, target detection and identification capabilities that could equip the U.S. Army's Future Vertical Lift mission for enhanced survivability and combat readiness.
Grant to help close talent gap
Raytheon Technologies awarded the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering, or ASCTE, in Huntsville, a $4 million grant to help prepare students for cyber and engineering careers in government and industry.
Future space domain awareness
As space becomes more congested with increasing numbers of satellites and debris, quantum entanglement could more precisely identify and track these objects. Quantum entanglement is observed when two particles, separated by great distances, instantaneously affect one another.
From photons to forecasts
Nothing has disrupted and improved forecasting more than the advent of highly accurate weather satellites. Satellites have greatly improved our understanding of the planet and weather phenomena, allowing us to look literally inside the eye of the storm.
FAA to upgrade telecomm infrastructure
Two Raytheon Technologies businesses – Raytheon Intelligence & Space and Collins Aerospace – are teaming to pursue a contract to overhaul the FAA telecommunications infrastructure that will use emerging and more secure technologies.
Measuring air quality from space
Air quality can be measured from space. Sitting on a perch 500 miles above Earth, an instrument called the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite, or VIIRS, actively monitors the air we breathe. (NASA image)
Soldiers 'shift gears' into new careers
The “Shifting Gears” program at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, was developed through a partnership between Raytheon, the U.S. Army and General Motors. The program trains soldiers who are headed for civilian life to become GM-certified automotive technicians. Since 2014, 487 soldiers have graduated from the program.
Air traffic control anywhere, anytime
Raytheon Intelligence & Space has launched the Deployable ATC Automation and Communications System, which can be operational in eight hours to launch and recover aircraft for expeditionary military missions, humanitarian relief, civil unrest, acts of terrorism or other situations where air traffic control services are temporarily unavailable.
