via PRNewswire

McKINNEY, Texas, Aug. 29, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Raytheon Company completed EO/IR/LD (electro-optical/infrared/laser designator) sensor verification flight testing for the U.S. Army Warrior unmanned aerial system (UAS) this month.

Conducted on an Army Twin Otter aircraft, the testing verified system performance and demonstrated the sensor's wide area search (WAS) capability.

"This is a very aggressive program, and the entire team is committed to maintaining our contract schedule," said Paul Shofner , Raytheon's program manager for the Warrior sensor payload. "We're excited to move into the next stage of developmental testing this month, assisting the Army in its sensor evaluation."

In June, Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) delivered the last of 10 Warrior EO/IR/LD sensors on time to the U.S. Army.

Raytheon is the prime multi-sensor payload provider for Warrior, formerly designated by the Army as extended range multi-purpose under a Communications-Electronics Command systems development and demonstration contract awarded in May 2005 . Warrior's EO/IR/LD sensor was selected by the Army prior to UAS platform selection.
