[Avionics Today 10-28-2015] Raytheon will continue mission support for the U.S. Air Force's Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) under a new $393 million contract. DCGS is the service's primary Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) analysis tool.
Under the new contract, Raytheon will continue to sustain, maintain and ensure operational availability of platforms and legacy systems that produce actionable intelligence for the Air Force. These systems collect, process, analyze and disseminate data gathered by sensors aboard the Air Force's ISR platforms — U-2, RQ-4 Global Hawk, MQ-1 Predator, MQ-9 Reaper and MC-12.
