Air-traffic control deal goes to Raytheon

Raytheon Co. won a $200 million contract to supply tactical air traffic control systems to the U.S. Army and Marine Corps for faster deployment.

The two systems?the AN/TPN-31 Air Traffic Navigation, Integration and Coordination System and the AN/FPN-67 Fixed-Base Precision Approach Radar?are used in operations worldwide, including Iraq. Raytheon will produce, test and deliver up to 30 of the first system and nine of the latter one over five years.

This award follows an earlier contract in which Raytheon delivered 24 air traffic navigation systems and 18 radar systems to the Army.

Headquartered in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 80,000 people worldwide and had 2005 revenue of $21.9 billion. It is No. 6 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list.
