Raytheon has announced that its Airborne Optical Sensor System (AOSS) has become a fundamental part of the Missile Defense Agency’s experiments. The Missile Defense Agency has been carrying out sophisticated infrared sensor experiments for missile defense applications.
The AOSS is a part of Raytheon’s series of multi-spectral targeting solutions. The Missile Defense Agency is currently examining the AOSS as a sophisticated airborne infrared sensor. The Multi-Spectral Targeting System offers high-altitude target tracking and acquisition of threat ballistic missiles. The systems are based on the company’s combat-proven and affordable systems that offer important details to U.S. forces through improved image quality in night and day settings.
Raytheon’s VP for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems, Tim Carey stated that the company is pleased to offer the AOSS to the Missile Defense Agency. Carey commented that the AOSS enables operators to examine the areas of interest and enables the Missile Defense Agency to recognize and follow the missile targets.
