Raytheon Company's Network Centric Systems has delivered the first two Multi-Function Radio Frequency System (MFRFS) radars for integration into the Quick Kill Active Protection System that Raytheon is developing for the U.S. Army.
MFRFS is a state-of-the-art, electronically-scanned, solid-state phased array radar system that can detect and track a full spectrum of threats to current and future Army vehicles. These threats range from rocket propelled grenades fired at close proximity to more distant threats such as kinetic energy projectiles. In addition, MFRFS, the system selected as the common radar for Future Combat Systems (FCS) manned ground vehicles, is capable of supporting a number of radio frequency functions including surveillance, high- band secure communications and combat identification.
Delivery of the MFRFS marks an important milestone in the development of Raytheon's Quick Kill Active Protection System. MFRFS has achieved all milestones to date, and the company is confident it will be integrated successfully on current force platforms.
