Raytheon to Develop New Airborne TOW Launcher

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 upgrade package with the TOW launcher will initially be available to Cobra helicopter users,” said Ike Song, vice president of Situational Awareness Systems for Northrop Grumman’s Woodland Hills, Calif.-based Navigation Systems division.
