With more than 1 million operational flight hours to date, Raytheon's family of MTS sensors equips manned and unmanned aircraft with combat-proven mission capabilities.
Interchangeable, survivable and adaptable to any platform, MTS provides superior detecting, ranging and tracking for military, national security and civil missions worldwide.
The sensor enables security forces on the ground to recognize threats early and respond quickly with precision.
The unprecedented surveillance and targeting capabilities provided by the MTS family benefits U.S. warfighters and Department of Homeland Security personnel.
