Prototyping. Development, Validation and Testing
Raytheon is to sustain and modernise the US Army’s missile defence and other strategic software under a contract valued at up to $600 million. The contract was awarded by the Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) at Redstone Arsenal, where the work will be conducted in the Software Engineering Directorate.
Rapid prototyping, hardware development, testing and validation will support Raytheon’s software engineering. Systems include; strategic missiles and launchers; radars; data mining and visualisation tools; condition-based maintenance; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; virtual operations centres; and cyber resiliency of fielded systems.
“Raytheon brings our software engineering expertise in automation, analytics and cyber to support the US Army’s global systems and the complex, multi-domain missions they support,” Dave Wajsgras, President of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services, explained. “Raytheon will support the AMRDEC SED to design, test and deploy software updates for critical systems used by US combatant commands and defence agencies that range from missiles and launchers to cyber resiliency. This key partnership will ensure the technology that our soldiers use on the battlefield will be ready and relevant for the fight.”
