Raytheon to help Navy improve data picture

Raytheon Co. will work on a Navy air and missile defense project that involves data distribution under a $48 million follow-on contract.

The award is for the Navy's Cooperative Engagement Capability program, which provides the capability to naval air and missile defenses by distributing sensor and weapons data in a new manner.

The program pools tracking data from sensors and distributes the data to all others in a filtered and shared state. The result is a detailed air picture based on all sensor data available that provides early detection and more consistent tracking of air contacts.

The first award for $32 million encompasses assembly, inspection, test and engineering support for seven Shipboard Cooperative Engagement Capability systems as well as spares.

The $16 million second award provides technical support to the Program Executive Office for Integrated Warfare Systems and includes technical reports, studies, ship-board and on-site support, assessment/evaluation of legacy software problem reports, support to fleet events and obsolete parts management.

Work on the first contract will be performed at Raytheon facilities in St. Petersburg and Largo, Fla., and Dallas and McKinney, Texas. Work on the second contract will primarily be performed in St. Petersburg.

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.
