Raytheon gets more Navy RF work

Raytheon Co.'s Integrated Defense Systems won a contract option to develop a low-cost receiver-on-a-chip for the Office of Naval Research.

The $1.9 million option is an add-on to an existing two-year, $4.1 contract, the company said.

The goal of the project is to develop affordable, advanced multifunction radio frequency components using low-cost silicon technology. The components are intended to support Office of Naval Research's topside initiatives, which are aimed at reducing the number of arrays aboard ships that can perform radar, communications and electronic warfare functions, and reducing associated lifecycle costs.

"This research is significant because it paves the way for affordable multifunction array architectures that support the Navy," said Mark Russell, vice president of engineering at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.

Raytheon's team includes HRL Laboratories, LLC, Malibu, Calif., and the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif.

Raytheon of Waltham, Mass., has about 80,000 employees and had sales of $20.3 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list of the largest federal IT contractors.
