The Raytheon Company Reveals Weaponry Advancements

(El Segundo, CA and Tucson, AZ) The defense, or military, contractor and industrial corporation; the Raytheon Company continues the advancement of weaponry.  Advancements in weaponry also include advancements in defense, and, civil government services.  For the previously said; the Raytheon Company also provides those services for a fee, to domestic or international clients.  For example, C5I services can be paid for by, domestic or international clients.  C5I is an acronym that means command, control, communications, computers, combat systems and interoperability.  Recently, the Raytheon Company revealed that, it has advanced weaponry.  However, this time the advancements are through, hardware.  Specifically; the weaponry advancements are for advanced synthetic aperture radar, and, for a surface to surface missile.

          The advanced synthetic aperture radar, and, the surface to surface missile that have been advanced are both under contracts; from the U.S. Department of Defense.  Continuing with, the advanced synthetic aperture radar, the previous, is a new version.  The old version is, the A.S.A.R.S.-2A system.  Officially, the new version is, the A.S.A.R.S.-2B system.  Additionally, it is under a $320 million USD contract, from the U.S. Air Force.  Furthermore, the A.S.A.R.S.-2B is designed to be used on, the U-2 Dragon Lady surveillance or spy aircraft.  On the U-2, the A.S.A.R.S.-2B is, an active electronically scanning array antenna.  Overall, it doubles the surveillance range.  Through the doubled surveillance range, mapping and imagery resolutions are enhanced; compared to the A.S.A.R.S.-2A.  As the new version, the A.S.A.R.S.-2B, is capable of the following two things.  To start it is capable of; multimode, long-range, air to ground radar that provides critical intelligence.  The critical intelligence is surveillance, and, reconnaissance data.  Second and finally, the A.S.A.R.S.-2B is also capable of operating in all types of weather; day or night.

          Continuing with, the advanced surface to surface missile, the previous is named Deep Strike.  The Deep Strike surface to surface missile system, is a successful preliminary design review.  The previously said, was conducted by the U.S. Army.  Additionally, the specific contract from the U.S. Army, or, U.S. Department of Defense; was not disclosed or defined.  Specifically, the preliminary design review was the implementation of the U.S. Army’s Precision Strike Missile Requirements, or, P.R.S.M.  The U.S. Army evaluated the missile’s design, the advanced propulsion system, the lethality package and its guidance system.  Due to the fact that; the preliminary design review was successful, the Deep Strike surface to surface missile system moves down the development path.  The next step, is test flights that, are planned for late in the year 2019.  Overall, the Deep Strike surface to surface missile system, from Raytheon is expected to do the following three things.  To start, it is expected to fly a farther distance, fly faster and carry with it a stronger punch.  For example, it is expected that the Deep Strike surface to surface missile system, can hit a target that is 60 to 499 kilometers away in distance.  Second, efficiency and responsiveness are expected to be dramatically enhanced; compared to the current surface to surface missile system.  The latter, is believed will help overmatch the U.S. Army’s adversaries.  Third and finally, the Deep Strike surface to surface missile system has been successfully integrated into; the U.S. Army’s M142 HIMARS missile launcher, and, the M270 MLRS missile launcher.

          To end, the Raytheon Company (NYSE:  RTN) did release press statements.  Eric Ditmars is the Vice President of Raytheon Secure Sensor Solutions at the Raytheon Company.  Through a press statement, Mr. Ditmars said the following.  “ASARS-2B allows the Dragon Lady to see further than ever before.  That kind of range is crucial for commanders to achieve decision superiority—and it ensures that the U-2 remains a preferred option for manned airborne surveillance operations.”  Col. Chris Mills is the Manager for Precision Fires, Rocket and Missile Systems at the U.S. Army.  Through a press statement, Col. Mills said the following.  “Completion of Raytheon’s PrSM Preliminary Design Review helps us accelerate development and fielding of this high priority Army program.  We are now ready to move to test and integration activities that will lead to a demonstration of PrSM’s new capabilities.”  As previously stated, the Raytheon Company recently revealed that, it has advanced weaponry.  However, this time the advancements are through, hardware.  Lastly and specifically; the weaponry advancements are for advanced synthetic aperture radar, and, for a surface to surface missile.
