For more than 160 years, Raytheon ELCAN has been delivering high‐precision optical systems for the most demanding challenges in the world. Across missions, industries and continents, we leverage the depth and breadth of our expertise to drive new standards of quality, innovation and performance.
At Raytheon ELCAN, we think differently to help customers see better and further across any domain and against any challenge.
Our high-performance optics can withstand the unique challenges of high-energy laser systems, with high laser damage threshold, ultra-low scatter, and excellent environmental stability and mechanical durability.
Weapons Guidance & Seekers
ELCAN delivers EO/IR sub-systems that direct missiles and precision-guided effects to successfully engage the right targets – whether moving or stationary – in challenging weather conditions and low visibility.
Infrared Search & Track and Counter Measures
ELCAN precision optical sub-systems can detect infrared signatures – for tracking and defense of military jet aircraft, helicopters and UAVs – and help pilots launch surprise attacks that evade radar detection and confuse enemy effects.
ELCAN reduces size, weight, power consumption, and cost (SWAP-C) with high-performance EO/IR sub-systems that gather data, intelligence and information from space – without compromise, without fail.
ELCAN gives pilots and platforms total control of the skies, with EO/IR sub-systems – from head-up displays to advanced sensor suites – that feed data into the cockpit to provide 360-degree situational awareness, and enable faster, smarter decisions.
From man-portable weapon sights to platform-mounted turrets and multi-spectral and EO targeting systems, ELCAN helps warfighters precisely see, discriminate and aim at targets, in the most challenging conditions, for a decisive tactical advantage.
