Raytheon and Korean Air partner on multiple-intelligence aircraft for ROK Air Force

Raytheon and Korean Air signed an exclusive collaboration agreement to pursue the Republic of Korea’s Air Force’s Intelligence Surveillance Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance program.

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. “By combining multiple sensors with advanced communications systems, we give Korean commanders the information they need, when they need it.”

Multi-INT synthesizes data from a variety of sensors – including radar, multifunction electro optical/infrared, and signals intelligence suites – to create a comprehensive picture of the battlespace. Working with Bombardier, Raytheon and Korean Air will modify Global 6500 business jets to meet ROKAF’s specific mission needs.

“We expect to make a great contribution to increase surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities for the Korean military by collaboration between Raytheon and Korean Air,” said Lee Soo-Keun, Executive Vice President and CTO at Korean Air.
