The United States has approved the sale of Raytheon’s Coyote Block 2 counter-drone weapon as part of Howler counter-drone system for international sales.

“The US government has cleared Raytheon to sell the Coyote Block 2 counter-drone weapon to approved allied nations as part of the Howler counter-drone system,” the company said in a statement Tuesday.

In 2019, the US Army deployed Howler, a combination of the Ku-band Radio Frequency System and Coyote Block 1, into the battlefield. The Coyote Block 2 is designed to use Raytheon's KuRFS multi-mission radar as its fire control source.

Raytheon recently completed developmental, operational and customer acceptance testing on the Coyote Block 2 variant. Powered by a jet engine, the new weapon can be launched from the ground to destroy drones and other aerial threats.

Raytheon expects to achieve full-rate production of Coyote Block 2 in 2020.
