“Raytheon brings our software engineering expertise in automation, analytics and cyber to support the U.S. Army’s global systems and the complex, multi-domain missions they support,” said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. “Raytheon will support the AMRDEC SED to design, test and deploy software updates for critical systems used by U.S. combatant commands and defense agencies that range from missiles and launchers to cyber resiliency. This key partnership will ensure the technology that our Soldiers use on the battlefield will be ready and relevant for the fight.”

Rapid prototyping, hardware development, testing and validation will support Raytheon’s software engineering. Systems include:

  • Strategic missiles and launchers
  • Radars
  • Data mining and visualization tools
  • Condition-based maintenance
  • Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance
  • Virtual operations centers
