Raytheon, Air Force Researchers to Build Space Imaging Sensor

Raytheon logoRaytheon (NYSE: RTN) will work with researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory to develop a sensor space instrument in order to understand hypertemportal imaging under a five-year, $33.7 million contract, Avionics Intelligence reported Sunday.

John Keller writes the Air Force Hypertemporal Imaging Space Experiment program’s goal is to collect data from target signatures in different background environments.

Keller reports Raytheon and the AFRL aim for the sensor to fly on the Orbital Sciences-built Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle Secondary Adapter Augmented Geostationary Laboratory Experiment spacecraft.

Raytheon is eligible for options to work on mid-wave infrared and midwave and longwave data channels, according to the report.
