Raytheon is set to showcase Precision weapons, gunfire detectors, jammers and missile tracker radar at the July 14-20 Farnborough International Airshow in England.

Raytheon equipment on display will include avionics and weapons, and with recent contract awards such as the U.S. Navy's Air and Missile Defense Radar, and the Navy's Next Generation Jammer.

Among Raytheon's featured items at the airshow:

•The Modern Man Station for the Patriot Air and Missile Defense System.

•The AN/TPY-2 defense radar, a mobile, bus-size, X-band radar.

The ultra-sensitive system can detect missiles as they ascend, giving defense systems crucial time and space to block the attack;

•Raytheon's Advanced Combat Radar, chosen last year by South Korea for its fleet of KF-16 C/D Block 52 Fighting Falcon combat aircraft.

•Advances in Raytheon weapons for the F-35 Lightning II fighter jet, which will make its Farnborough debut this year;

•The Miniature Air Launched Decoy Jammer, or MALD-J, a lightweight, air-launched craft that jams the radar of enemy air.

•Upgrades to the Tomahawk Cruise Missile.
