Raytheon has received approval from the U.S. Department of State to export the SeaVue eXpanded Mission Capability (SeaVue XMC) maritime and overland surveillance radar to Morocco. Morocco is the first country cleared for export of this radar with expanded technology.
"Raytheon's proven experience as a global leader in maritime surveillance is further solidified by this approval to export our unique capability," said Tim Carey, vice president for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems for Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business.
"No other company offers this exclusive technology to the Middle East-North Africa region."
Raytheon's SeaVue XMC is deployed on U.S. Navy and U.S. Customs and Border Protection aircraft for surveillance along the U.S. coastline, as well as in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Its flexible radar architecture allows custom configuration to various platforms.
The XMC software significantly lessens operator workload by reducing the number of hours required to monitor and identify potential threats in the maritime domain. This translates to a significant increase in the area covered, which saves global customers time and money while increasing mission success.
More than 150 Raytheon SeaVue radars, without the expanded capability, are operational worldwide in Australia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Pakistan, Taiwan, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
