When it comes to missile defense, no nation — and no system — can stand alone. Protecting people, places and the principle of sovereignty itself takes vision. It takes precision. It takes technologically advanced sensors, command-and-control systems, satellites and interceptors, working in layers to defeat all types of threats, from short-range missiles to hypersonic warheads hurtling through space. Raytheon Missiles & Defense breakthrough technologies enable sensors to see farther. They mean command-and-control systems can process data faster. And they mean operators can employ interceptors to engage their targets with even greater precision. Deployed around the world, these technologies are helping the U.S., and its allies make the world a safer place. The company is bringing together its decades of experience and partnership with the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, U.S. Department of Defense and allied nations to help explore the demands for a future missile defense system.
