Raytheon Develops Sensor Data Sharing Tech for Australian Navy - top government contractors - best government contracting eventRaytheon has designed and built a “sensor-netting” system for installation on the Australian navy’s Hobart-class guided missile destroyers.

The company said Wednesday it also tested the Cooperative Engagement Capability  ahead of planned U.S. Navy certification of the system for its first international deployment.

CEC will work to help the Australian navy to exchange sensor data within a network of other Australian or allied vessels and aircraft that are also equipped with the technology.

Capt. Jonathan Garcia, CEC major program manager at the U.S. Navy, said the system will support Australia’s anti-air warfare defense missions in the Pacific Region.

The system employs certified hardware and software will undergo an integration, test and evaluation period following installation on Australia’s HMAS Hobart and NUSHIP Brisbane destroyers slated to occur in the coming months.

CEC is designed to integrate aggregate radar data from ships, aircraft and ground-based units into a single integrated aerial image in real time.

Raytheon also seeks to help the Australian navy integrate and test the system at sea.

The system is currently installed on E-2C/D aircraft, ships, land based test facilities and U.S. Marine Corps networks.
