Raytheon, Logos partner on ISR sensors
A new collaboration between Raytheon and Logos Technologies will address intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) requirements with advanced multi-intelligence (multi-INT) sensor systems, Raytheon announced on 5 October.
The companies will integrate Raytheon's high-definition Multi-Spectral Targeting System (MTS) and Logos' wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) technology to form a modular, lightweight sensor system suitable for a wide range of existing and next-generation platforms.
The aim is to support multiple sensor types, including WAMI, multi-spectral full-motion video (FMV), hyperspectral imaging, light detection and ranging, and signals intelligence.
The new sensor system will allow military ISR operators to use multi-sensor data – meaning greater combined intelligence - to detect, recognise and identify hard-to-find targets across wide areas and in near-real time without extensive post-mission processing.
According to Logos, WAMI provides the ability to monitor large areas, such as an entire city, at once. This allows operators to track multiple suspects scattering in different directions in near real-time from the air; to see where they're going, who they meet up with and where they've been.
Fred Darlington, vice president of ISR systems at Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems, said: ‘Combining high-resolution FMV, wide-area motion ISR and other sensor modalities delivers an unparalleled advantage in real-time processing and data exploitation.’
