Raytheon's SeaVue XMC is deployed on U.S. Navy and U.S. Customs and Border Protection aircraft for surveillance along the U.S. coastline, as well as in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Its flexible radar architecture allows custom configuration to various platforms.
The XMC software significantly lessens operator workload by reducing the number of hours required to monitor and identify potential threats in the maritime domain. This translates to a significant increase in the area covered, which saves global customers time and money while increasing mission success.
More than 150 Raytheon SeaVue radars, without the expanded capability, are operational worldwide in Australia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Pakistan, Taiwan, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
