Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon Co. recently won a $19.4 million contract under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s program to build imaging sensors meant to help the U.S. military identify and track targets, Military & Aerospace Electronics reported Wednesday.

John Keller writes Raytheon’s El Segundo, Calif.-based space and airborne systems segment will collaborate with military researchers to engineer avionics and vetronics sensors for the Military Imaging and Surveillance Technology – Long Range program’s second phase.

DARPA’s Strategic Technology Office aims for the MIST-LR program to address the imaging receiver’s aperture, impact of turbulence, receiver array performance, illumination requirements and image formation algorithms, according to the report.

Raytheon will collaborate with Trex Enterprises Corp. for the program, MAE reports.

Keller writes the project will use computational imaging, synthetic-aperture imaging, digital holography, multi-static laser radar and angle-resolved imaging to develop geometric and three-dimensional imaging technologies for identifying targets.
