Raytheon Completes Acceptance Testing for the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Sept. 21, 2005 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company has successfully completed flight trials and acceptance testing for the EXTRACT System, an airborne reconnaissance system aboard a special airborne reconnaissance aircraft for the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force.

The company provided airborne reconnaissance systems, ground based analysis systems and a rear crew trainer and will provide continued contractor logistic support for the new system through 2013.

The reconnaissance system Raytheon developed consists of an airborne payload that examines routine radio and radar emissions while providing electronic combat support to military commanders. This upgrade provides enhanced automated capabilities to respond to current and future threats.

"Raytheon has more than 30 years of experience providing airborne reconnaissance systems. We are extremely pleased that these capabilities can be leveraged within the European theater," said John Nannen, vice president of Tactical Intelligence Systems for Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems.

Derek Whittaker, the U.K. Ministry of Defence (MOD) project manager, stated: "A project of this complexity is not without its problems, but the Raytheon engineers, project managers and senior management have to be congratulated in the manner in which they have all worked closely with the U.K. MOD to provide a system that in some respects far exceeds the original expectation. The completion of the acquisition phase of the contract is a laudable milestone and could only be accomplished in an atmosphere of co- operation, openness and trust between all parties, which has been clearly evident during the crucial acceptance process."

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
