"The successful Factory Acceptance Testing is the latest in the major milestones we have achieved as part of our RB-10 program delivery," said David Conway, Integral Systems' RAIDRS Program Manager. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Air Force as we move into the deployment phase of the program, which will help the U.S. Military better detect, locate and categorize interference against its space assets."
