Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) has received a contract from the U.S. Army to develop a prototype of a tactical ground station designed to facilitate long-range precision targeting by detecting and tracking threats.
The Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node will collect data from terrestrial, space and aerial sensors and deliver targetable data to defense platforms to enable multidomain operations in support of the Joint All-Domain Command and Control concept, the company said Wednesday.
Raytheon’s competitive prototyping contract awarded through an other transaction agreement with Consortium Management Group will run for 14 months and deliver hardware and software components and other capabilities to the platform.
The company said it expects its TITAN platform to provide commanders with multisource intelligence support and help them improve situational awareness.
Scott McGleish, executive director with space and C2 systems at Raytheon Intelligence & Space, said his team will work to deliver a mature platform to help Army commanders speed up decision-making processes and advance the JADC2 vision by operationalizing joint warfighting capabilities.
In January 2021, Raytheon and Palantir were awarded separate 12-month OTAs to mature system design and software under the first phase of the TITAN prototype initiative.
