Raytheon Hits JLENS Milestone

Raytheon’s (NYSE: RTN) Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System program hit a milestone when it successfully transmitted from an elevated aerostat.

“This milestone demonstrates another step in the maturing of our JLENS program as a game-changing capability for our warfighters to detect and defend against cruise missile threats, ” said Dave Gulla, vice president, National & Theater Security Programs for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.

The demonstration was conducted at the Utah Test and Training Range.

According to the firm, “the aerostat deployed to an altitude of 10, 000 feet mean sea level, and the surveillance radar began emitting radio frequency radiation into free space for the first time.”
