Whether aloft in the skies aboard a fighter jet protecting the skies or an airborne surveillance platform monitoring developments on the ground, Raytheon's Secure Sensor Solutions mission area is responsible for providing advanced capabilities for multiple types of tactical aircraft and other platforms. We provide the most advanced systems to navigate in challenging environments, and ensure mission success.

Part of Raytheon's Intelligence & Space business, S3 provides capabilities that enable critical tasks---from target identification, aircraft navigation, and target engagement.

With our systems, warfighters know where they are going and what they are going to do when they get there.

The Resilient Navigation (RNAV) product line is responsible for providing U.S. and coalition forces with accurate GPS navigation capability to successfully achieve their missions-free of disruption and jamming. GNS solutions equip manned aircraft, precision weapons, and ground systems.

These products include anti-jam systems, integrated GPS/INS navigators, high performance Selective Availability Anti-Spoof Module (SAASM) receivers, and Military Code (M-Code) receivers.


GNS capabilities include:

  • Front-end system analysis and modeling

  • System protection

  • Advanced navigation and receivers

  • Design, development, and integration

  • Functional, performance, and environmental testing

  • High-reliability production

  • Depot maintenance

  • World-class test and evaluation facilities

  • Full line of Anti-jam products
