Precision Weapons Product Guide

Close enough is no longer good enough on today's battlefield. Hitting the enemy—and only the enemy—has become critical to keep alliances together, maintain public support and manage the cost of battle.

Our new technologies are reliable and cost-effective, permitting precision attacks while avoiding harm to nearby people and structures. They reduce the trade-offs between protecting warfighters and hitting only the desired target.

Raytheon's precision weapons are advancing armaments and public attitudes about the use of force in new millennium warfare.
