Raytheon realigns government, defense units

Raytheon Co., Lexington, Mass., has reorganized its government and defense businesses into seven separate units, the company announced Aug. 30.

The new businesses draw from the former Electronic Systems unit and the Command, Control, Communication and Information Systems unit.

"This new, leaner government and defense structure ... eliminates layers and cost and will enable us to move with greater speed and agility," said Daniel Burnham, chairman and chief executive officer of Raytheon.

The seven business units are:

*Homeland Security, which will provide systems and services that assess, combat and respond to terrorism and the terrorist threats. Hugo Poza is vice president.

*Integrated Defense Systems, which will provide integrated air and missile defense and naval and maritime warfighting systems, including modeling and simulation capabilities for the Missile Defense Agency and capabilities for Army, Navy and Marine Corps. Ed Franklin, previously vice president and general manager of the Air and Missile Defense Systems business unit, has been named president.

*Intelligence and Information Systems, which will provide intelligence and information technology solutions using signals, imaging and geospatial intelligence. Mike Keebaugh, previously vice president and general manager of Imagery and Geospatial Systems, has been named president.

*Missile Systems, which will develop missile systems. Louise Francesconi, previously vice president and general manager of Missile Systems, has been named president.

*Network Centric Systems, which will develop battlespace networks that incorporate sensors, systems and secure communications. Colin Schottlaender, previously vice president and general manager of Tactical Systems, has been named president.

*Raytheon Technical Services Company, which will provide technical, scientific and professional services for defense, federal and commercial customers. Bryan Even is president.

*Space and Airborne Systems, which will provide solutions for critical space and airborne missions. Jack Kelble, previously vice president and general manager of the Surveillance and Reconnaissance business, has been named president.
