ARLINGTON, Va. – The Raytheon Technologies Intelligence & Space segment in Arlington, Va., is introducing the RAIVEN electro-optical intelligent-sensing capability, which will enable pilots to identify threats more quickly and precisely than they can today.
RAIVEN can identify objects optically and spectrally simultaneously in real-time; just one infrared system never has been able to do this before, company experts say.
RAIVEN's intelligent-sensing capability uses artificial intelligence (AI), hyperspectral imaging, and light detection and ranging (lidar) to enable operators to see as much as five times farther and clearer than traditional optical imaging.
RAIVEN synthesizes reams of data into a detailed picture of the battlespace and the threats within it. The AI automatically detects and identifies threats, delivering a level of automation for the operator to choose what decisions need to be made – providing a critical capability while drastically reducing operator workload.
RAIVEN is a modular open-systems design that builds on the Raytheon Multi-Spectral Targeting System family of sensors by providing more mission versatility and capability within the same size, weight, and power (SWaP) specifications.
The first version of RAIVEN, RT-1000, can support a wide array of missions, including the U.S. Army's Future Vertical Lift modernization effort, with the first flight test being conducted in 2024.
