Raytheon Lands $191M Army Contract for Counter-UAS Radars

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has won a potential $191M contract to deliver Ku-band radio frequency radars to the U.S. Army for use against unmanned aerial vehicles.

The company said Thursday its KuRFS electronically scanned array system is geared to provide military users with fire control and detection of enemy missiles, artillery and UAVs.

The system operates with the Phalanx Weapon System, as well as certain guns, cannons and lasers, to address a variety of threats.

“Seeing threats – like swarming drones – as soon as possible on the battlefield is essential to protecting critical assets and saving soldiers’ lives,” said Andrew Hajek, senior director of tactical radars at Raytheon’s integrated defense systems unit.

He added that the KuRFS fulfills this function by providing 360-degree situational awareness, precision and mobility.
