Raytheon introduces reconnaissance system prototype to Canadian Army

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., 31 May 2012. Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC (RTSC), a subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), unveiled its Light Armored Vehicle Reconnaissance Surveillance System (LRSS) prototype to the Canadian Army in Ottawa, Ontario.

The LRSS is designed to fit into the Canadian Army's Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV)-III, built by General Dynamics Land Systems based in Sterling Heights, Mich., to provide improved flexibility allowing on-the-move intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. The design enables the LAV-III to create actionable information at the point of collection inside the vehicle and report digital ISR information to the base commander.

The LRSS acts as a smart node in the overall Canadian Intelligence Surveillance Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance enterprise. It works with off-board sensors from UAVs and unattended ground sensors, in both an LAV-III-mounted configuration or dismounted configuration using tripods.

Raytheon is teamed with SRI Sarnoff, a research and technology development company based in Princeton, N.J., on the integration of the LRSS for the Canadian Army to provide 3-D situational awareness and Command, Control, Communication and Computers (C4) ISR. SRI Sarnoff works on video processing, manipulation and salient data distribution, even at low bitrates.  

The Will-Burt Company supplies the on-the-move rated telescopic mast for the LRSS Integrated Sensor System.
