RAYTHEON SELECTED FOR INDIAN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL PROJECTS

 LEXINGTON, Mass., Dec. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Airports Authority (NAA) of India has chosen Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) for the modernization of air traffic control systems at the Bombay and Delhi Airports.
 Raytheon and the NAA will begin final negotiations in early January on terms and conditions for the contract, which is valued at about $80 million. Raytheon was chosen by the NAA over several other bidders from various countries.
 The selection is Raytheon's fourth major international air traffic control win over the past 18 months, following earlier awards from Norway, Germany and The Netherlands.
 The India project will include radars, navigational aids, displays, and air traffic control automation systems. Its open architecture automation system will be similar to those being delivered to Norway and The Netherlands by Raytheon and its international partner, Ceselsa of Spain.
 Two airport surveillance radars and two air route surveillance radars, described as the latest generation of all-solid-state primary radars, will be manufactured by Raytheon's Canadian subsidiary, Raytheon Canada Limited.
 Four monopulse secondary surveillance radars will be produced by Raytheon's UK subsidiary, Cossor. Raytheon's Indian partner, NELCO Ltd., a member of the Tata Group, will furnish in-country installation and software support.
 Other system elements include navigational aids, voice communication, an aeronautical information briefing system, and airport surface detection equipment radars.
 Financing for the program is being provided by the Eximbank of the U.S. and EDC of Canada.
 The project's program manager, Paul Medis, said Raytheon "is delighted that the NAA has chosen us," adding that, "There's no better way to affirm our expanding role in the international air traffic control arena than to win major contracts like this one -- once again, by the way, against strong international competition.
 "India's choice of Raytheon reflects most favorably on our ability to satisfy customers such as those in Canada, Germany, Norway, and the United States."
 In addition to its growing presence in the international air traffic control market, Raytheon continues to work on multi-year contracts for the Federal Aviation Administration's Advanced Automation System and Terminal Doppler Weather Radar systems.
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a $9 billion, international technological company with sales in four business segments: Electronics, Aircraft Products, Energy and Environmental, and Major Appliances.
