Stock Update (NYSE:RTN): Future drones, planes, missiles no match for new Raytheon radar

[PR Newswire] – ANDOVER, Mass., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Air and missile defense is about to get better. Raytheon Company (RTN) recently completed a series of company-funded milestones to upgrade the combat-proven Patriot Air and Missile Defense System. The projected upgrade delivers 360-degree capability and keeps Patriot ahead of increasingly more sophisticated threats, such as aircraft, drones, and cruise and ballistic missiles. The Patriot radar main array was enhanced with gallium nitride- (GaN) based, Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology. The same Raytheon engineers who completed those milestones are currently constructing a GaN-based AESA, full-size, main panel radar array. Read more on this.
