Raytheon Demonstrating Advanced ISR Visualization and Analytic Capabilities at Empire Challenge 2011

DULLES, Va., May 27, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) is showcasing its advanced intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) visualization and analytic capabilities system, Sentinel Thunder, during this year's Empire Challenge May 23 to June 3 at Fort Huachuca, Ariz.

Sentinel Thunder provides a mobile micro-cloud with advanced ISR visualization and analytics that is scalable to meet customer requirements. It can operate as both a stand-alone organic ISR capability as well as a shared ISR resource in the cloud.

"Consisting of three Raytheon sub-systems, including the Multi-Intelligence Exploitation Tool (MIETool), GViz2 and Semantic Fusion, the Sentinel Thunder suite provides scalable, component-based applications and services for the warfighter," said Todd Trapp, director of Tactical Intelligence Systems for Raytheon. "As a result, warfighters and intelligence operators will be able to more easily exploit, fuse and share intelligence information from multiple sources."

During Empire Challenge, Raytheon's MIETool will undergo a formal warfighter assessment. GViz2 and Semantic Fusion also will be informally evaluated to see if they are candidates for fielding in the near future.

Raytheon's Cross-Domain Enterprise All-Source User Repository (CENTAUR) also will support the exercise. CENTAUR exchanges ISR information with U.S. and multinational partners at sites worldwide using cross-domain technologies.

Empire Challenge is an annual joint and multinational ISR interoperability demonstration sponsored by the U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence. The exercise highlights emerging ISR capabilities and provides vital lessons to improve joint and combined ISR interoperability to support warfighters at the tactical edge.
