Raytheon Technologies will continue development of the US Army’s Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node (TITAN) program after receiving a competitive, prototype phase through an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with Consortium Management Group, Inc. (CMG) on behalf of Consortium for Command, Control and Communications in Cyberspace (C5).
TITAN is a tactical ground station that finds and tracks threats to support long-range precision targeting. The Raytheon Technologies team led by Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RI&S) is designing TITAN to serve as the Army’s underpinning solution to enable multi-domain operations.
“Our team is prepared to deliver a mature solution on time to help Army commanders make decisions faster and ultimately, operationalize joint warfighting capabilities to support the JADC2 vision,” said Scott McGleish, executive director with Space & C2 Systems at Raytheon Intelligence & Space. “Our team has the mission know-how to develop and deploy this system efficiently and affordably, with flexibility to upgrade over time.”
TITAN will ingest data from space and high-altitude, aerial and terrestrial sensors to provide targetable data to defense systems. The Raytheon-developed solution will also provide multi-source intelligence support to targeting, and situational awareness and understanding for commanders. Leveraging capabilities that support pattern-of-life sensemaking and automated target recognition, the TITAN solution will also help operators make sense of the massive amounts of data and prosecute a target with the appropriate solution.
The Department of Defense (DoD)’s vision for a command-and-control network will connect the battlespace across every domain – sea, air, land, space, cyber and the electromagnetic spectrum. RI&S in collaboration with the Raytheon Technologies business units, is contributing a multi-domain footprint of capabilities in secure communications, advanced sensors, software solutions and smart effectors to enable DoD’s Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) architecture.
A recent demonstration used data from five different sensor types in a real-time processing chain with machine-learning models to generate quality data output.
The contract term for the competitive prototype phase is 14 months and will bring additional capabilities to the solution, including software and hardware components. As part of their development, the Raytheon Technologies team will combine modern development tools and processes with cutting-edge production and design practices to increase the quality of the capabilities while meeting aggressive delivery timelines to stay ahead of the threat.
