Raytheon gets more Army sensor work

Raytheon Co. won a contract modification from the Army to provide engineering support for sensor systems deployed in war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq to detect hostile troop movement.

Under the modification, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will furnish engineering support for the Rapid Aerostat Initial Deployment (RAID) systems. The Raytheon unit will be responsible for lifecycle support and management for more than 150 elevated sensor systems and their remote operation capabilities through March 2008.

The unit will carry out the work at its Integrated Air Defense Center in Andover, Mass., and Warfighter Protection Center in Huntsville, Ala. Raytheon Technical Services Co. also will assist on the project.

RAID consists of infrared sensor systems elevated on stationary platforms that can detect hostile troops and equipment movement from great distances. The capability enables U.S. forces to respond quickly to new and ongoing threats to U.S. and coalition forces.

Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems is a unit of Raytheon Co. of Waltham, Mass. The company ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
