Raytheon Intelligence & Space:  The PhantomStrike AESA radar

Radars give fighter pilots the edge – finding targets first, identifying them and defeating them. And now outfitted with GaN-power – Raytheon Intelligence & Space’s Active Electronically Scanned Array, or AESA, radars provide aircrews with greater engagement ranges, improved accuracy and increased reliability.

Its PhantomStrike radar harnesses the fire control of a fighter in its lightest form factor ever, delivering heavyweight performance for a fraction of the cost. The PhantomStrike is designed to be integrated onto any platform, including a light-attack aircraft, rotary wing aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and stationary platforms such as cell towers. And thanks to its open mission systems architecture design, PhantomStrike is easily upgraded, ensuring its battlespace relevance for years to come.

RI&S will be showcasing the new affordable and compact AESA radar at the Farnborough Airshow.

Eric Ditmars, president, Secure Sensor Solutions at Raytheon Intelligence & Space will be available at the show to discuss how PhantomStrike offers advanced capability in an innovative design that gives our customers more radar options.

Raytheon Intelligence & Space: High Energy Laser/ Electronic Warfare

In a recent U.S. Army operational assessment Raytheon Intelligence & Space’s 50kW-class high energy laser weapon demonstrated repeatable counter-mortar capability.

RI&S’ high energy laser weapon system works on land, in the air and at sea, providing 360-degree coverage that can protect bases, airports, stadiums and other high-value military or civilian facilities. Fully exportable to 46 countries, the system has proven “plug & play” capability with a long list of existing air defense systems to add a critical layer of protection.

Annabel Flores, president, Electronic Warfare Systems at Raytheon Intelligence & Space, will be available at Farnborough to discuss RI&S’ work on high energy lasers as well as RI&S’ full suite of Electronic Warfare Systems.

Raytheon Intelligence & Space: Raytheon Distributed Aperture System

In advance of the Farnborough International Airshow, Eric Ditmar, president, Secure Sensor Solutions is available to discuss how RI&S in developing Raytheon’s Distributed Aperture System.

RDAS gives pilots 360-degree spherical situational awareness that enhances survivability and combat readiness. The platform-agnostic, tailorable system turns night into day – providing passive missile detection, autonomous target tracking and obstacle avoidance.

Raytheon Missiles & Defense: AMRAAM

The AMRAAM missile is a modern marvel of military technology. And it’s getting even better thanks to a development effort called F3R – form, fit, function refresh. The medium-range missile is being upgraded to address rapidly evolving threats.

Paul Ferraro, president of Air Power for Raytheon Missiles & Defense, will be available at Farnborough to share more insight into how F3R is benefitting international customers, how EToF (extended time of flight) will tap into latent capability to increase the range of AMRAAM, and AMRAAM-ER, which just passed a Functional Configuration Audit and is on track for the first delivery to an international customer in November.

Raytheon Missiles & Defense: Latest updates on GhostEye MR

In advance of the Farnborough International Airshow, Thomas Laliberty, president of Land Warfare & Air Defense at Raytheon Missiles & Defense, will be available to share details about GhostEye MR, a medium-range radar that maximizes the capabilities of the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System, or NASAMS.

GhostEye MR provides a 360-degree surveillance and fire control sensor with multi-mission capabilities to counter a wide variety of threats, including cruise missiles, UAVs, fixed-wing, and rotary-wing aircraft. Tom can share insight into the program’s development, advancements in mission capability, and recent milestones.


Raytheon Missiles & Defense: Naval Strike Missile

The Naval Strike Missile, made in partnership with Kongsberg, is a fifth generation, anti-ship cruise missile and land attack weapon that customers rely on for multi-mission capability. It is currently being considered as a potential upgrade for the Royal Navy’s Harpoon surface-to-surface guided missiles.

Kim Ernzen, president of Naval Power at Raytheon Missiles & Defense, will be available at Farnborough to share more about the NSM coastal defense system and why it is uniquely qualified to meet the need in this heightened landscape.

Raytheon Missiles & Defense: LTAMDS

The Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) is the newest air and missile defense sensor for the U.S. Army, providing significantly more capacity and capability against the wide range of advancing threats facing air defenders around the world.

Advancements on the radar continue. Most recently, the first of six radars was delivered to the U.S. Army’s White Sands Missile Range; and the Polish Minister of Defense, Mariusz Błaszczak, announced his plans for Poland’s WISLA Phase 2 – including signing a letter of request to include a 360 degree radar (LTAMDS).

In advance of the Farnborough International Airshow, Tom Laliberty, president of Land Warfare & Air Defense at Raytheon Missiles & Defense, will be available for an interview about the latest on LTAMDS.



  1. Raytheon Missiles & Defense:  SM-6

Kim Ernzen, president of Naval Power at Raytheon Missiles & Defense, will be available in advance of the Farnborough International Airshow to speak about SPY-6 and the U.S. Navy’s $3.16 billion contract to provide radars for as many as 31 ships over the next five years.

Kim can speak about the steady stream of array deliveries that have been on time despite COVID as the program transitions from factory to the fleet, as well as backfitting the Flight IIA ships with SPY-6, which is important to potential international customers wanting to do the same.
