The US Army has approved Raytheon's Coyote Block 2 counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) for Foreign Military Sales (FMS), Jane's reported.


Lisa Hunter, US Army spokesperson, said on 19 February that interested customers should submit a letter of request through their local security co-operation office, starting with the Office of Defense Cooperation at their local US embassy. The Coyote Block 2 C-UAS capability is a rail-launched surface-to-air missile (SAM) being developed for the US Army through the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA).

Juan Santiago, C-UAS product director at the Program Executive Office (PEO) Missiles and Space, part of the US Army Rapid Capabilities Office, told Jane's on 12 February that this Coyote C-UAS contract is a cost-plus-fixed-fee effort that provides analysis, design, development, prototyping, integration, testing, and production of expendable tube-launched UAS to protect against hostile attacks, intelligence gathering, and other malicious activities directed against critical infrastructure.
