RAYTHEON TEAM AWARDED MAJOR ARMY DEVELOPMENT CONTRACT

 LEXINGTON, Mass., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Army has awarded a contract with a potential of $93 million to Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) for a Joint Precision Strike Demonstration Program.
 The five-year contract calls for the design, development, operation, and maintenance of a Joint Precision Strike demonstration center at the Army's Topographic Engineering Center in Fort Belvoir, Va.
 Raytheon will head a team that also includes three Virginia based companies -- Science Applications International of McLean, The Analytical Sciences Corporation of Reston, and MRJ of Oakton.
 The team will also support the Army's demonstration planning and execution activities, and will incorporate simulations and models into the testbed center as required.
 William H. Swanson, senior vice president and general manager of Raytheon's Missile Systems Division, emphasized that "The ability to locate, identify, and coordinate attacks against time critical targets under all weather conditions presents a real challenge. We look forward to working with the Army and the other services to apply our expertise in systems engineering, modeling, simulation, and software development to demonstrate solutions to this problem."
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a $9 billion, technology-based international company with sales in four business segments: Electronics, Aviation Products, Energy and Environmental, and Major Appliances.
