Falls Church VA (SPX) Jul 31, 2008
Raytheon has partnered with Boeing to bid for the U.S. Air Force's Counterspace Command and Control Sustainment contract.

The contract, with a potential value of $100 million during the next 10 years, outlines the need for a comprehensive command and control, or C2, capability supporting the Air Force's space superiority mission.

The requirements include designing and developing a solution that will protect global satellite communications systems and deliver new C2 capabilities to the Air Force.

The contract award is expected in September 2008.

"Raytheon's solution will enable the Air Force to manage and update the system in a virtual environment, a significant savings to our customer," said Jack Harrington, vice president, Network Centric Systems' Command and Control Systems.

"This capability is another example of Raytheon's experience and track record of providing proven transformational solutions to the warfighter that align with emerging Department of Defense net-centric standards."
