Photo Release -- Raven Industries Persistent Surveillance Solution Supports U.S. Navy South Maritime Operations

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., June 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raven Aerostar (Nasdaq:RAVN) recently concluded a successful maritime operation in response to an urgent requirement from the Commander, U.S. Navy South (Mayport, Fla.) for a maritime persistent surveillance solution aimed at enhancing security in the Caribbean Basin. Quickly meeting the requirements provided by U.S. Navy South, Raven Aerostar deployed a turnkey Maritime Persistent Surveillance Solution featuring a Raven Aerostar Tethered Aerostat System integrated with a state-of-the-art Vista Smart Sensing Radar System, a General Dynamics electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) camera, and a data link aboard the High-Speed Vessel – SWIFT (HSV-2). Departing from Key West, Fla. onboard the flight deck of the HSV-2, Raven Aerostar's Maritime Persistent Surveillance Solution was deployed to support U.S. Southern Command's international effort to provide surveillance in the Caribbean Sea. This successful operation builds on the continued international engagement of Raven Aerostar, and their wholly owned subsidiary, Vista Research, providing cost effective, persistent surveillance solutions that leverage tethered aerostats integrated with radars and other surveillance capabilities to enhance regional security in both land and maritime environments.
