WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Raytheon said Tuesday it will partner with Aerojet, Goodrich and EFW to bid for a new aviation defense system for the U.S. military.

The military contractor said it will be joining forces with the three companies to bid for the advanced precision kill weapon system II this autumn and offer a "low-risk, cost-effective, robust solution with precision lethality and operationally flexibility for aviation systems for the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and allied forces."

Raytheon said its team will maximize "the strengths of guided missile technology, laser seeker technology, low-cost actuation systems and extensive rocket motor experience to ensure low risk, rapid integration of proven technologies."

Its system will provide "the warfighter 100 percent confidence of 'one rocket, one kill,'" Ron Krebs, the program's manager, said in a news release.
