Raytheon Modernizes U.S. Air Force Missile Warning Architecture

The U.S. Air Force awarded Raytheon a 5-year $197 million contract to modernize its missile warning architecture with a new system that will collect and fuse data from an array of sensors and provide a comprehensive picture of launch activity. Under this contract, Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services developed a completely open framework, Future Operationally Resilient Ground Evolution (FORGE) Mission Data Processing Application Framework (MDPAF). The FORGE MDPAF will process Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) satellite data from both the U.S. Air Force’s evolving Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) constellation and the future Next Gen OPIR constellation, as well as be capable of processing data from other civil and environmental sensors.
