Raytheon demos 3rd generation FLIR system
Recently, Raytheon Company’s (RTN) 3rd Generation Forward Looking Infrared (3rd Gen FLIR) Improved Target Acquisition System (ITAS) and fire control successfully achieved proof of concept in a series of laboratory and field tests. Preliminary evaluation of the impact of firing all versions of the TOW missile was also performed.
Raytheon’s FLIR improvement program provides warfighters with better clarity at all ranges, allowing them to identify targets and differentiate between combatants and non-combatants at greater stand-off ranges. Implementing 3rd Gen ITAS FLIR improvements will continue to give the warfighters in the field an unfair advantage in the fight.
During the test, the 3rd Gen ITAS FLIR demonstrated improved sensor performance and enhanced situational awareness. The demonstration was conducted in the presence of program office personnel from the US Army’s Close Combat Weapons Systems and Army Aviation and Missile Research and Development Engineering Center.
