PARIS, 17 June 2013. At the Paris Air Show, Raytheon is featuring its Advanced Warfighter Awareness for Real-time Engagement (AWARE) line of advanced situational awareness products, using helmet, cockpit, and vehicle-mounted smart displays to give air and ground warfighters intuitive networking capability.
Advanced Warfighter Awareness for Real-time Engagement is a family of products designed to maintain full situational awareness for pilots and dismounted soldiers.
New and existing AWARE systems at the Paris Air Show include the multifunction Center Display Unit (CDU) for F-16 aircraft. Raytheon's CDU is certified by the U.S. Air Force as the F-16's Primary Flight Reference. The Helmet Mounted Integrated Targeting system is also being shown with the CDU demonstration.
Being demonstrated as well is the new Joint Tactical Air Controller system prototype for dismounted soldiers and the highly successful soldier-worn Aviation Warrior system with eye-level monocle display and 3D Audio.
"With our AWARE product line, our customers are able to cost effectively upgrade and significantly increase the situational awareness capabilities of their existing platforms," says John D. Harris, Raytheon Company vice president and general manager of the company's Intelligence, Information, and Services business.
"With the global reach of the Paris Air Show," he added, "we are also demonstrating the AWARE family of innovative ruggedized computer display systems for ground vehicles, which keep ground and airborne warfighters connected."
