Raytheon procures parts for India's Munitions Control Unit, enabling Indian Air Force Jaguar aircraft to employ modern precision weapons

NEW DELHI, 2 April 2012. Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) is procuring components needed to build the Munitions Control Units (MCUs) for 126 Indian Air Force Jaguar Darin II attack aircraft. The MCU enables integration of modern weapons on legacy aircraft with little to no modifications to aircraft wiring and flight or stores management software. The compact MCU, able to be located in a weapons pylon or avionics bay of legacy aircraft, provides an interface between a legacy aircraft’s existing software and modern smart weapons.

"MCU will give the Jaguar the capability to employ smart or advanced weapons like the Joint Standoff Weapon, Maverick missile, Paveway precision-guided munition, and AIM-9M Sidewinder air-to-air missile," says Harry Schulte, Raytheon Missile Systems' vice president of Air Warfare Systems.

Raytheon won a contract to build the MCU in 2011, whereas funding was authorized in 2012.
