Raytheon Company Electronic Systems produce advanced technology products for U.S. forces, allies, and commercial customers worldwide. Raytheon systems are found on land and sea, in the air, and in space, performing surveillance, reconnaissance, targeting, navigation, defense, and scientific functions.
Electronic Systems equips the M1 Abrams tank, the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, and other light armored vehicles with weapon sights and targeting systems, and put technology directly in the hands of the infantry with their portable weapons sights. They make integrated ship information systems, including radar and sonar systems, that provide a comprehensive picture of the maritime environment and protect ships, certain aircraft, and their crews from sea-borne threats.
Electronic Systsems' radars are found aboard F-14, F-15, and F/A-18 fighters, the B-2 stealth bomber, the F-117 stealth fighter, and the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, and allow pilots to perform precision strike missions and gather intelligence. Electronic Systems' technology also aids federal and commercial endeavors such as law enforcement, security, oil spill response, and search and rescue. In space, their programs include the Optical Telescope Assembly, Fine Guidance Sensors for the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer the keystone instrument for NASA's Earth Observing Systems.
