Citing its ability to integrate and manage large technology-based programs throughout the Joint Battlespace, Raytheon Company is offering the Department of Homeland Security a solution to reliably sense and control illicit nuclear materials at points of entry into the United States.

Raytheon's award-winning manufacturing capability (SHINGO Award, 2005), combined with a strong small business partnership with Bubble Technology Industries (BTI) and its expertise in nuclear physics, will provide this critical capability.

"We see this as a logical extension in the integration of national security with the Joint Battlespace," said Dan Smith, president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS). "Our offering is an excellent match with the government's requirement for an advanced nuclear screening portal system."

Raytheon IDS provides prime program management, engineering, manufacturing, field support, research and development for future systems improvements as well as recognized experience in managing and integrating large, highly technical government projects in defense and security. BTI is a small business with global reputation in nuclear physics.

The team will produce a second generation of advanced spectroscopic portal, significantly reducing false alarms compared to the first generation of screening portals.
