Partners in Control

Raytheon announced at the end of last month that it has teamed with Boeing to bid to supply the command and control system for the Air Force’s counterspace capabilities. “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, the company’s vice president overseeing the offering. USAF seeks a comprehensive command and control architecture to support its space superiority mission, which includes the task of protecting global satellite communications networks. The award of the contract for this work, which will have a total potential value of $100 million over 10 years, is expected in September, Raytheon said.
