The Multi-Spectral Targeting System-B sensor for detecting and tracking targets.

Interceptor and Sensor Technology

We assist the Missile Defense Agency and the U.S. military with protecting the country and our forces by developing advanced technologies that enable air and missile defense systems to identify, track, and intercept potential threats. Our technology and system developments help improve advanced ballistic missile defense concepts and capabilities with new ground, airborne, and space-based sensors. We work on advanced sensors and algorithms, missile guidance, simulations, system tests, data extraction and processing, and data reduction and analysis.
