Raytheon has been awarded a contract by the US Air Force to provide additional AN/AAQ-29A forward-looking infrared imaging systems.

Under the $42m contract, Raytheon’s AN/AAQ-29A systems will replace the existing AN/AAQ-16 FLIR systems installed on Pave Hawk HH-60G helicopters.

The new system is a small, lightweight FLIR imager with a systems electronic unit capable of supporting a variety of helicopter missions that include low-level navigation and surveillance.

Raytheon Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems vice president Tim Carey said the new systems will provide additional capabilities to the user to perform critical combat search and rescue missions.

Deliveries of the system are expected to be completed by February 2013.
