 RAYTHEON DIVISION TO ASSIST DISADVANTAGED VIRGINIA FIRM
 PORTSMOUTH, R.I., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company's


(NYSE: RTN) Submarine Signal Division is providing support to a small, disadvantaged business as part of a competitive $3.7 million U.S. Navy contract calling for the upgrade of the Submarine Emergency Communications Transmitter (SECT).
 AmerInd., Inc., of Alexandria, Va., a Native American-owned company, has been awarded a "set-aside" contract from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) for the redesign and refurbishment of AN/BST-1 Buoy System electronics. This system has been used for the past two decades as an emergency means of communication between U.S. Navy submarines and shore-based facilities.
 The AmerInd team will refurbish system control electronics and redesign equipment. An Engineering Development Model (EDM) will also be delivered to the Navy for testing, with contract completion scheduled for early 1993. The new system will be known as the AN/BST-1 ().
 Submarine Signal Division will be responsible for redesigning the buoy and selected stand-alone electronics subassemblies. Raytheon is also responsible for refurbishing test equipment associated with the buoy system.
 Submarine Signal is a leading producer of advanced undersea warfare systems which include sonar and combat systems for surface ships and submarines.
 As a prime contractor, the division is committed to a policy of maximizing its purchases of goods and services from small, disadvantaged businesses. Through the third quarter of 1991, the division has committed approximately $7 million to such businesses. This figure represents nearly 10 percent of all the division's outside purchases.
 Raytheon Company, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a diversified technology-based company active in electronics, major appliances, aviation, energy and environmental services and publishing. Raytheon recorded sales of $9.3 billion in 1990.
