Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon and the U.S. Marine Corps have finished a series of live-fire tests of a weapon system the company is building for a fleet of ground vehicles.

The company is contracted to develop and integrate anti-tank weapon systems into four Light Armored Vehicle Anti-Tank vehicles and is scheduled to start development testing later this year, Raytheon said Wednesday.

Operational testing is scheduled to begin in late 2014.

Michelle Lohmeier, Raytheon vice president of land warfare systems, said the company designed the turret and thermal technologies to help perform surveillance and targeting functions while on-the-move.

Lohmeier added the company worked to reduce equipment size and increase the amount of crew space inside the vehicle.

The system is designed to work at long ranges, all weather conditions and during both daytime and nighttime.
