Raytheon Android Tactical System

Google’s Android mobile OS is getting adopted is many devices, and next up it’ll be used in the Raytheon Android Tactical System (RATS), which is a compact device that will relay battlefield images from satellites and aircraft to soldiers on the ground, allowing them to easily zoom in on details like license plates or faces. The RATS device will cost about $500, and is designed to help soldiers keep track of their comrades’ movements on the battlefield as well, apparently via a similar concept to social networking. In case you think the name Raytheon sounds familiar, they’re the folks who came up with the cool anti-aircraft laser recently.
