Raytheon Co. in McKinney, TX won an $8.6 million firm-fixed-price and cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for the Extended Range/Multi-Purpose Electro/Optic/Infrared/Laser Designator Program. The Advanced EO/IR/LD (Electro-Optic/Infrared/Laser Designator) payload is a lightweight, low-cost Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisition (RSTA) system designed to enhance the capabilities of the U.S. Army's Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (TUAV). It provides improved stand-off distances and increased search rates for the TUAV, as well as addresses the need for increased target detection capability and improved target location accuracy.
