When it comes to missile defense, no nation — and no system — can stand alone.

Protecting people, places and the principle of sovereignty itself takes vision. It takes precision. It takes technologically advanced sensors, command-and-control systems, satellites and interceptors, working in layers to defeat all types of threats, from short-range missiles to hypersonic warheads hurtling through space.
Raytheon Missiles & Defense breakthrough technologies enable sensors to see farther. They mean command-and-control systems can process data faster. And they mean operators can employ interceptors to engage their targets with even greater precision. Deployed around the world and drawing on the company's decades-long dedication to reliability and readiness, these technologies are helping the U.S., its friends and allies make the world a safer place.
