Army to Adopt Raytheon-Built UAS Counter-Drone Missions

The U.S. Army has chosen a Raytheon-made unmanned aircraft system and radar technology to help the service branch counter drone threats.

Raytheon said Tuesday its Coyote UAS is designed to work with the company’s Ku-band radio frequency radar to detect and track adversarial unmanned aircraft.

Coyote is a tube-launched vehicle that uses a seeker technology and a warhead to recognize threats when used alongside the KRFS electronically scanned array to support surveillance, electronic warfare and strike operations.

An operator can launch the UAS platform individually or in swarms to perform missions, the company noted.

KRFS works to aid fire control and UAS swarming efforts at a tactically significant distance.

The Army has deployed more than 32 KRFS radars to date.
