As domains converge and connect, new threats and opportunities emerge. By giving service members every advantage for operational success, RTX is creating a safer world. It is this mission that drives our innovation in defense technology.
A relentless pursuit of progress drives us forward every day – because the progress we make matters. And it matters because what we deliver protects and connects our world.
We draw on decades of investment in technology to protect our world. Here are just a few examples.
pounds of thrust produced by the F135 fighter engine
coverage delivered by LTAMDS radar to defeat next-generation threats
operational hours of high-energy laser weapon systems
lives (and counting) saved by the ACES family of ejection seats
How can you own the sky before leaving the ground?
Annabel Flores, a strategic business unit leader at Raytheon, discusses the importance of taking control of the skies at the first instance of a strategic threat. RTX’s high-energy laser systems are helping defeat drone swarm threats without leaving the ground. Our airborne sensors give pilots and unmanned aircraft the advantage at penetrating enemy airspaces and accomplishing their missions.
All about the F-35
It’s the world’s most advanced fighter jet, and RTX produces much of the technology that helps it accomplish its many missions – including our new, smart F135 engine core upgrade.
Data collected in one military domain is often useful in another. Our sensors and networks can connect those domains securely, delivering the intelligence that helps make the right decision at the right time.
How can you own the sky before ever leaving ground?
RTX creates the most advanced air-to-air missile capabilities to counter peer threats at extended range in an increasingly complex world. They matter in the defense of allied nations and their citizens – and they matter in ways we have yet to imagine.
What will define the future of aerospace and defense?
Progress is not automatic. It is initiated – by tirelessly asking the hard questions and finding answers. In our digital engineering hubs, research labs and advanced manufacturing facilities, our researchers and engineers are pushing the limits of known science.
For our global workforce of innovative thinkers, progress defines the future – and it defines us.
