RAYTHEON AWARDED $33 MILLION NETHERLANDS ATC CONTRACT

 LEXINGTON, Mass., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dutch Air Traffic Control organization (LVB) has awarded Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) a $33 million contract for the Amsterdam advanced air traffic control system (AAA).
 The new system will provide area-wide air traffic control, central flight planning, approach control for the Amsterdam (Schipol) airport, and flight data services for the Rotterdam airport.
 The Amsterdam facility will feature a totally integrated radar and flight data processing system which uses fault tolerant computers in an open architecture configuration. The system is designed to be compatible with new Eurocontrol standards promoting harmonization of European ATC.
 In addition to the Netherlands award, Raytheon has recently captured major ATC programs in Norway and Germany.
 Raytheon won the Netherlands contract over two strong competitors -- Thomson CSF's subsidiary, Hollandse Signaal Apparaten (HSA), and a combined Unisys and IBM team.
 The Amsterdam system will include established off-the-shelf designs from Raytheon and its team member, Ceselsa of Spain. These existing designs will be combined with special adaptations and new designs to provide a system fully compliant with Dutch requirements.
 As prime turnkey contractor, Raytheon will be responsible for integrating all of the product's elements, including radar data processing, flight data processing, simulation subsystems, and new high- resolution color workstations. Raytheon is working closely with its Dutch partner, Nijkerk Systems B.V., which provides in-country services.
 Raytheon ATC systems combine proven application software and commercial, off-the-shelf hardware to provide users worldwide with low- risk, cost-competitive solutions to their varying air traffic control requirements.
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a $9 billion diversified technology company with sales in four business segments: Electronics, Aircraft Products, Energy and Environmental, and Major Appliances.
