Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon has demonstrated a new multi-function processor for weapon systems through its own research and development funding.

A Tomahawk Block IV missile aboard a T-39 aircraft was embedded with the modular processor to monitor and destroy radio-frequency-emitting objects, Raytheon said Monday.

“We have assessed our company-funded multi-mission processor at Technical Readiness Level 6, enabling it to move to the engineering, manufacturing and development phase,“ said Mike Jarrett, Raytheon air warfare systems vice president.

The processor captured various electronic signals from targets during the test simulated at subsonic speed.

“Besides Tomahawk, the processor could be used in other sophisticated weapon systems,“ Jarrett added.
