A Raytheon-developed counter-drone platform has achieved an initial operational capability status from the U.S. Army that will enable the product to be fielded for combat operations.

The company said Tuesday that its Howler anti-unmanned aerial system offering features the integrated capabilities of the company's Coyote UAS and multimission Ku-band radio frequency system radar.

Howler deploys KuRFS advanced electronically scanned array features as well as Coyote's detection capabilities to support the system's precise threat targeting and situational awareness functions.

Bryan Rosselli, vice president of Raytheon's mission systems and sensors division, said Howler's precise tracking and engagement features will help the Army address constantly evolving drone threats.

He noted that Raytheon completed development and testing activities for the counter-UAS platform within a 17-month period.
