US Navy, Raytheon Receive Pentagon Engineering Award

Recognized For GPS-Guided Precision Landing Program

A U.S. Navy program that uses technology developed by Raytheon to land aircraft in harsh weather has been recognized with a Department of Defense engineering award.

The Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS) Increment 1A ship system received the Systems Engineering Top 5 Programs Award for "successful implementation of systems engineering best practices resulting in program success," according to the Department's announcement. JPALS uses the Global Positioning System and two-way data links for precise area navigation and landing approaches for Navy carrier-based aircraft and helicopters.

The U.S. Navy-Raytheon team "utilized solid systems engineering practices to manage requirements, identify and mitigate risk, and manage the technical baseline, while keeping the program within cost and schedule targets," according to the evaluation team. An award ceremony was held Oct. 24, 2012, in San Diego, CA., sponsored by the National Defense Industrial Association.

Raytheon is currently installing JPALS on the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush, CVN-77 (pictured above). Government integration of the system with other ship systems was completed in the Navy's test facility, and flight testing commenced in May 2012. Shipboard testing on the carrier is planned to start as early as December.
