Raytheon's JLENS Successfully Tracks Test Targets

Raytheon's JLENS Successfully Tracks Test Targets: "
Raytheon Company's JLENS (Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System) has successfully demonstrated tracking targets of opportunity in the Salt Lake City air space. Testing and integration of the system is being conducted at the Utah Test and Training Range.

This successful test follows a number of program milestones, including the first full-power transmit from the fire control radar. During previous testing at the Raytheon facility in Pelham, N.H., the radar successfully tracked targets of opportunity and ran planned flight tests for position verification.

'The JLENS program continues to demonstrate significant system maturity during real-world testing in Utah,' said Dave Gulla, vice president, Global Integrated Sensors at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. 'JLENS is a game-changing system for warfighters, providing enhanced situational awareness and surveillance capabilities in the detection and deterrence of cruise missile and unmanned aerial threats.'
