Raytheon's advanced intelligence solution and an analytics tool have been successfully tested aboard the US Navy's experimental vessel, Stiletto, during operations at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, US.

The two technologies were the Persistent Surveillance System Cross Domain Solution (PSS CDS) and Intersect Sentry.

The test, which formed part of the Stiletto Maritime Technology Demonstration Program, combined the two proven capabilities to serve a new mission at sea.

Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services command, control and awareness director Bob Dehnert said: "Raytheon has created two capabilities that are easily reconfigured for deployment on multiple missions.

"They give warfighters proven, automated information sharing and analysis support for surveillance missions in any domain."

PSS CDS is capable of receiving critical data from multiple sensors, providing troops with two-way information and command sharing across both classified and unclassified domains.

The second technology, Intersect Sentry, is an automation and analysis tool that creates alerts from a variety of intelligence, sensor and reconnaissance data streams according to parameters defined by the user.

During the demonstration, Intersect Sentry automatically analysed data streams and sent alerts to the PSS CDS for simultaneous display across various networks, which created a common operating picture for different users operating at multiple classification levels.

Designated as CD 15-2, the capability demonstration was one of a series sponsored by the assistant secretary of defence for research and engineering.

The Stiletto Maritime Demonstration Program and the Stiletto vessel are operated by the US Navy, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division.
