I think this news release by Raytheon may provide a solution to
a couple of 'weird' sky observations over my patio. And, yes,
Raytheon does do tests over the southern desert. Regardless of
whether one believes that it does not take place and the FAA
would never allow it. Testing does happen, especially when a
company can use the fact that our military is at war.

Raytheon completes fifth Small Diameter Bomb II tri-mode seeker
in new factory

Proven Raytheon production line has broad applications for tri-
mode seeker development

Bad weather and the cover of darkness are no longer obstacles
for the warfighter.

Raytheon has developed a tri-mode seeker that fuses millimeter-
wave radar, uncooled IIR and digital semi-active laser sensors
on a single gimbal. The result is a powerful, integrated seeker
that seamlessly shares targeting information between all three
modes, enabling weapons to engage fixed, relocatable or moving
targets around the clock in adverse weather conditions.

Raytheon's uncooled tri-mode seeker, common to both the Air
Force and Department of the Navy's Small Diameter Bomb II (SDB
II) program and the Raytheon Boeing solution to the Joint Air-
to-Ground Missile competition, combines capability with the
lowest total cost of ownership. By eliminating unnecessary and
potentially troublesome cryogenic cooling, the warfighter gets a
weapon with improved reliability and reduced life-cycle cost.

Recently, Raytheon built the fifth Small Diameter Bomb II seeker
in its new factory expressly designed to assemble integrated
tri-mode seekers.

"Raytheon is the only company building integrated tri-mode
seekers on a ‘hot' production line and we're doing it in less
than a year after contract award,", said Harry Schulte, vice
president of Raytheon Air Warfare Systems. “Producing seekers in
an active factory is one of the reasons Raytheon can keep its
commitment to deliver SDB II to the warfighter on cost and on
