The work will be done at the Simi Valley facility of the Monrovia-based company and is expected to be completed by October 2010. The Raven is a small, hand-launched aircraft with a wingspan of 4-1/2 feet used by the U.S. military for low-altitude surveillance and reconnaissance intelligence. The aircraft delivers real-time color or infrared imagery to the ground control and remote viewing stations.
