 RAYTHEON RECEIVES $73 MILLION FOR NAVY SATELLITE TERMINALS
 LEXINGTON, Mass., Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) received a $73 million contract award from the U.S. Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command for a third year production lot of terminals for the Navy's Extremely High Frequency (EHF) Satellite Communications Program (NESP).
 The contract includes the production of 57 terminals, as well as training, documentation and related supporting items.
 The terminals will be produced at Raytheon's Equipment Division facilities in Waltham and Marlborough, Mass. Terminal deliveries under this third consecutive contract are scheduled to begin in 1994.
 Raytheon's Equipment Division won a Navy competition in 1986 for NESP development and fixed-price production for five years. Delivery and installation under the two earlier terminal contracts will begin this year.
 The terminals produced under this contract provide secure, tactical jam resistant, low probability intercept communications. Shipboard, submarine and shore versions of the terminals will operate with EHF packages on the Navy's Fleet Satellite Communication satellites and Ultra-High Frequency Fleet Satellite (UHFS) communication follow-on satellites; and MILSTAR satellite constellations.
 The NESP terminals will interact with terminals from other military services to enhance tactical operations for joint and combined forces. NESP will provide unique communication features to enhance the Navy's fleet communications capability in support of its drug interdiction, regional crisis containment, embargo enforcement, low intensity conflict and wartime roles. Prototype NESP EHF terminals were used successfully during Operation Desert Storm.
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a multi-industry, technology-based international company active in electronics, aviation, communications, energy and environmental services, construction and publishing.
