The American defense company Raytheon has agreed to an $8 million settlement for violating U.S. arms control regulations.
The U.S. Army has approved a second recertification of Raytheon's Patriot missiles, which will extend the operational life of the missiles from 30 to 45 years. This is great news for Patriot's customers around the world who can now recertify and upgrade their Raytheon Patriot missiles at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new missiles. The Letterkenny Army Depot in Pennsylvania and Raytheon will perform the recertification work. All upgrade work will be done by Raytheon at its Andover, Massachusetts facility.
In a recent interview, alliance Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow expressed that the U.S.change to global missile defense could dispel Russian concern and foster cooperation. The new plans for the U.S. missile shield, announced in March, would station 14 Ground Based Interceptors, including Raytheon's EKV, in Alaska and halts the development of a new Aegis interceptor.
Raytheon Company announced the delivery of its eighth AN/TPY-2 ballistic missile defense radar to the Missile Defense Agency. The mobile radar acquires and tracks ballistic missile threats after launch, providing U.S. Combatant Commanders with mission critical target information. Earlier this month, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel discussed plans to deploy an AN/TPY-2 radar to Japan as part of the U.S.'s efforts to ‘beef up' missile defense protection from North Korean and Iranian threats.
The modernization of airspace systems is helping to meet this growing demand with greater capacity, safety and efficiency.
Raytheon's world-class technology, training and industry leadership in U.S. and international airspace management are helping to ensure these important goals are met.
Transformation of air travel - it's happening today
For more than sixty years, Raytheon has been a leader in the continuous improvement of one of the nation's most important assets: the National Airspace System. The FAA and Raytheon are working together to replace current systems with new technology that will support greater capacity and enhanced capabilities - safely and cost-effectively. Benefits also include saving fuel, cutting down on noise and reducing carbon emissions. Modernization of air travel - it's happening today.
Raytheon is working with the FAA to help them guide and track air traffic more precisely and efficiently. And the entire planet is benefitting. Because finding the most efficient way to a destination means lessening aviation's impact on the environment - saving fuel, reducing carbon emissions and cutting down on noise. Transformation of air travel - it's happening today.
Whether it's improving older aircraft with solutions like the RACR radar and Center Display Unit upgrade, expanding the capacity of the world's air traffic management systems or modernizing navigation with GPS OCX, Raytheon takes technology and prepares it for the future.
Our sensing and radar innovations do more than deliver superior performance. Innovations like the Visible/Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite and the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System enable more accurate and timely weather forecasting, helping to save lives and reduce the costs of severe storms.
