Test Report: Raytheon Sensors Track Multiple Ballistic Missiles from Air

During a test at the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kauai, Hawaii, Raytheon-produced airborne sensors successfully and precisely tracked multiple ballistic missiles from an airborne platform, according to a report from Military & Aerospace Electronics

Skyler Frink writes that four of the company’s multispectral targeting system-B electro-optical infrared sensors tracked multiple targets and sent important information to airborne processors for post-test analysis.

Frink also notes the airborne processors demonstrated closed-loop tracking ability and provided a precise line-of-sight to targets.
