Raytheon Co. yesterday opened a new missile defense center for the design and development of key components of ballistic missile defense systems for the Army and the Missile Defense Agency.
The Woburn, Mass., center features a robust information technology network, a modern conference center and an advanced modeling and simulation facility. It will house 1,100 engineers and administrative personnel.
