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.

F-35 lands on Italy's Cavour

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.
