Raytheon and Korean Air have agreed to pursue the Republic of Korea’s Air Force’s Intelligence Surveillance Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance programme. Under the agreement, Raytheon will be the prime contractor and provide multiple-intelligence, or Multi-INT, technologies for the aircraft. Korean Air will deliver design, logistics and life cycle support services.
“Technology is changing the way we fight and the speed at which we do it. For today’s commanders, a few seconds can make the difference between success and failure,” said Roy Azevedo, president of Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems, after signing the agreement at the ongoing Seoul ADEX2019.
“By combining multiple sensors with advance communications systems, we give Korean commanders the information they need, when they need it,” Azevedo said.
