Raytheon has received a contract to provide advanced surveillance towers to an unnamed Middle Eastern nation to help protect its borders, military bases and critical infrastructure, the company announced on 4 March.

Under the contract, awarded by the US Army, Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS) will provide an EO/IR camera elevated on a semi-stationary platform, capable of providing persistent surveillance.

Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon IIS, said: ‘Raytheon provides a full range of advanced border security solutions, from system architecture to smart fences and 24/7 surveillance systems, to customers around the world. We have delivered more than 500 surveillance towers to the US and other countries.

‘We will deliver this surveillance system and the related technologies our ally needs to maintain the sovereignty of their borders and help protect their armed forces.’
