Situational Awareness Upgrade for Remotely Piloted Aircraft

Raytheon Solipsys, a Raytheon subsidiary, has won a $9 million contract to install its Zeus situational awareness and collaboration system for remotely piloted aircraft at 18 Air Combat Command, Air National Guard, and Air Force Special Operations Command locations. “Zeus provides RPA operators with a real-time correlated and fused track picture from multiple plot and track sources with collaboration and communication tools such as chat, common data formats, cursor-on-target, and the ability to fully participate in a Link-16 network,” said Adam Stull, Zeus project lead, in a the company’s release. The system is based on the Tactical Display Framework and Multi-Source Correlator Tracker, both Raytheon Solipsys products that have been “battle-tested” in all four military services.
