Raytheon makes executive moves in space business

William Hart has been named vice president of Space Systems at Raytheon Co.’s Space and Airborne Systems division, succeeding Brian Arnold, who was appointed vice president for space strategy.

Hart, who joined Raytheon in 1975, will lead the Space Systems suite of programs, establishing plans and strategies, setting the vision and direction of the organization, and leading change-management efforts, said Jon Jones, president of Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems, which includes the Space Systems group, in a Jan. 30 statement.

Before his promotion, Hart was a program management executive at the company’s Integrated Defense Systems business.

In his new role, Arnold will be responsible for anticipating customer needs and providing viable solutions to them. He also will drive the development of plans to expand core markets, working closely with customers and scientific communities.

Arnold, a retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant general, is a former commander of the Space and Missile Systems Center at Los Angeles Air Force Base. In that role, he managed research, design, development, acquisition and sustainment of space launch, command and control, missile and satellite systems.

Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems is a division of Raytheon Co., of Waltham, Mass. The parent company ranks No. 4 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
