Raytheon will develop an airborne launcher designed to employ radio frequency-guided TOW (tube-launched, optically tracked, wireless-guided) missiles. The new TOW airborne launcher will be compatible with past, present, and future versions of the TOW missile. The TOW weapon system features a family of multimission missiles fired from a variety of ground and helicopter platforms. The missiles provide soldiers with a heavy-assault, precision capability at long ranges. Future versions under consideration include missiles with improved insensitive munitions compliance, reduced time to target, and increased range. The new TOW airborne system will be integrated into Northrop Grumman's proven suite of glass cockpit upgrades.
