Raytheon Surveillance and Analytics Technologies Proven Aboard Stiletto

Raytheon successfully tested an advanced intelligence solution by combining two company technologies during an underway demonstration aboard the U.S. Navy’s experimental vessel Stiletto, according to a recent Raytheon news release. The combined technology was created by combining Raytheon’s Persistent Surveillance System Cross Domain Solution (PSS CDS) and Intersect Sentry during Stiletto’s Capability Demonstration 15-2 at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek, Fort Story, Virginia.

“Raytheon has created two capabilities that are easily reconfigured for deployment on multiple missions,” said Bob Dehnert, Command, Control and Awareness director for Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services.

PSS CDS receives data from multiple sensors and offers two-way sharing of information and commands across both classified and unclassified domains. Intersect Sentry, an automation and analysis tool, creates alerts from a variety of intelligence, sensor and reconnaissance data streams according to user-defined parameters. Both systems have been successfully demonstrated in support of joint and coalition maritime operations, according to the release.

The test was conducted as part of the Stiletto Maritime Technology Demonstration Program operated by the U.S. Navy, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division. The Stiletto is an 88-foot, pentamaran-hulled vessel constructed of composites that was built to test littoral warfare concepts through a series of capability demonstrations. It has a top speed of more than 50 knots.

“Raytheon has created two capabilities that are easily reconfigured for deployment on multiple missions,” said Bob Dehnert, Command, Control and Awareness director for Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. “They give warfighters proven, automated information sharing and analysis support for surveillance missions in any domain.”

The two systems created a common operating picture for different users at multiple classification levels during the demonstration, with Intersect Sentry automatically analyzing data streams and sending alerts to the PSS CDS for simultaneous display across various networks.
