Raytheon's 3rd Generation Forward Looking Infrared (3rd Gen FLIR) Improved Target Acquisition System (ITAS) and fire control successfully achieved proof of concept in a series of laboratory and field tests.

Preliminary evaluation of the impact of firing all versions of the TOW missile was also performed.

"Raytheon's FLIR improvement program provides warfighters with better clarity at all ranges, allowing them to identify targets and differentiate between combatants and non-combatants at greater stand-off ranges," said Jeff Miller, vice president of Combat and Sensing Systems for Raytheon Missile Systems.

"Implementing 3rd Gen ITAS FLIR improvements will continue to give our warfighters in the field an unfair advantage in the fight."

During the test, the 3rd Gen ITAS FLIR demonstrated improved sensor performance and enhanced situational awareness.

The demonstration was conducted in the presence of program office personnel from the U.S. Army's Close Combat Weapons Systems and Army Aviation and Missile Research and Development Engineering Center.

Used by the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps, ITAS provides highly mobile, adverse-weather, day/night capability needed by early entry forces to counter advanced threats.

This latest 3rd Gen ITAS maintains the same near-and-wide fields of view while adding ultra-narrow and ultra-wide fields of view. In addition, Raytheon's 3rd Gen FLIR combines long-wave and mid-wave infrared and high-definition resolution.
