Raytheon Scores Second Deal With NASA Ames

By Nick Wakeman, Staff Writer

MAY 1 ? Raytheon Co. of Lexington, Mass., has won a five-year, $65 million contract to supply information technology services to NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif.

Under the contract, Raytheon will provide IT services to support the development, testing, implementation, operation, management and maintenance of new and enhanced information, imaging and communication systems, networks and facilities.

The range of support includes voice, video and data communications, engineering, local network administration, IT security, help-desk services and database administration.

Work under this contract complements the support Raytheon provides to Ames under the Federal Information Processing Services contract. That work entails information systems technology and services, system administration, Web services, airspace management research and development, aerodynamics research and research in human factors and space science.

"Raytheon has a proven track record of developing, deploying and integrating IT solutions for federal customers," said Phil LePore, chief executive of Raytheon Technical Services Co. "This win of a second contract with the same customer demonstrates [Ames'] confidence in our ability to meet the breadth of IT requirements under the program."

Raytheon Technical Services, a subsidiary that will manage the contract, provides technical, scientific and professional services for defense, federal and commercial customers. It specializes in management, operation and maintenance of customer facilities, equipment and systems; logistics and life-cycle support; overhaul and repair depot operations; engineering, logistics and personnel support; space and Earth sciences; test and training range support; and privatization of government services.
