Raytheon to develop software for Zumwalt systems

Suite offers user interfaces, technical data management capabilities

Raytheon Co. will provide additional software that uses open-architecture standards for the Navy's Zumwalt-class destroyer under a $241 million contract.

Under the contract, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will provide software that helps manage engineering machinery controls and damage control systems, company officials said. Specific applications include computer-graphical user interfaces and a technical data management capability designed to control ship propulsion, integrated power, auxiliary and damage control systems.

Raytheon also will furnish land-based and shipboard testing of the systems. Work will be performed at Tewkesbury, Mass., and Portsmouth, R.I.

The company recently won a $197 million contract to furnish engineering services for the Navy’s amphibious transport ships.

Raytheon, of Waltham, Mass., ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
