Raytheon to build and deploy surveillance solution

1st July 2013 - 16:42 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon will build an integrated multi-INT Persistent Surveillance System Cross Domain Solution (PSS CDS) to safeguard forward deployed forces as part of a contract awarded by the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR). The contract was announced on 1 July.

PSS CDS provides warfighters with a complete picture of impending threats, from both classified and unclassified sources.

The system is a software package small enough to mount onboard an aircraft, that transfers sensor data, high-definition surveillance video, and traditional and non-traditional ISR imagery, as well as situational awareness data, to give warfighters a complete picture of impending local threats, such as improvised explosive devices or a group of insurgents.

The system also protects soldiers by gathering intelligence from hundreds of miles away using sensors on aerostats, towers and unmanned aerial vehicles, allowing warfighters to make confident and informed decisions in real-time.

Mark Kipphut, Tactical Intelligence Systems director for Raytheon's Intelligence, Information and Services business, said: ‘The PSS CDS is a proven solution and one that offers protection to our warfighters in hostile, remote environments by granting them real-time access to secure, multi-domain intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data. What makes this system unique is its game-changing capability to quickly share data between classified and unclassified environments.’
