Description: The Raytheon's AN/AAS-52 is a multi-spectral system designed to provide surveillance, targeting, rangefinding, tracking and laser designation for Hellfire missiles and other laser-guided munitions. Basically, it consists of spot laser, IR and Electro-Optical sensors. This system is combat proven and is available for rotary wing, UAVs and fixed-wing platforms. Growth potential allows addition of TV camera, spot tracker, avionics or other multiple wavelength sensors. Actually MTS has been integrated onto Predator aircraft owned by the US Air Force and the US Navy.

On January 3, 2005, Raytheon was awarded a $22 million contract for delivery of 11 MTS B-configuration systems in support of Predator program to be completed by April 2007. In September 2005 Raytheon was awarded a $31 million contract to provide the AN/AAS-52 Multispectral Targeting System A-model (MTS-A) for the US Navy MH-60R/S helicopter and Predator unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Up to 32 MTS-A systems were set to be delivered with options for 19 additional systems.
