Raytheon delivers first production SeaVue XMC radar
Raytheon Company has delivered the first of three SeaVue expanded mission capability radars to the US Customs and Border Protection.
Raytheon delivered the first production radar in the record time of just six months. This radar will be installed on US Customs and Border Protection's second Guardian unmanned aircraft system, a maritime variant of the Predator B. Raytheon will deliver two additional SeaVue radars to US Customs and Border Protection for installation on the P-3 aircraft.
"SeaVue XMC reduces operator workload and improves overall mission efficiency," said Tim Carey, vice president, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems, for Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems. "This proven radar is saving customers time and money, and increasing mission success around the world."
Raytheon offers versatile airborne surveillance radars, such as the SeaVue XMC, that can be used for commercial and military applications, including customs and drug enforcement, border surveillance, exclusive economic zone monitoring, anti-piracy, illegal traffic monitoring, oil spill detection, and search and rescue.
