US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems Visit, 17 February, 2004


NCBC Cadets joined with their shipmates from NETC Division in Newport to tour the facilities of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems in Portsmouth, RI. The Cadets learned about Raytheon's work in developing technologies that will be used for integrated air and missile defense and naval and maritime warfighting solutions. Examples that were discussed and demonstrated included the AN/FPS-108 Cobra Dane Radar System, the DD(X) next-generation surface combatant ship, the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program, the upcoming LPD-17 Amphibious Ship, and other sonar and sensor systems used by the U.S. Navy.
