Raytheon has received a $9.4 million contract for engineering support of the Triton multi-spectral targeting system on the Navy MQ-4C's Triton drone.
Work on the contract will be performed in McKinney, Texas, and is expected to be completed by August 2020, a US DoD announcement said.
The new electro-optical/infrared system will provide visual imagery alongside existing sensors that will improve low-visibility, night navigation, interception, observation and surveillance, insertion and extraction operations, combat search and rescue, identification, and other forms of reconnaissance.

It has a range of over 9,000 miles and can stay aloft for over 24 hours before refueling. The Triton mounts maritime radar, electro-optical and infrared cameras, communications relays and electronic support measures systems.
