RAYTHEON WINS NAVY CONTRACT TO DEVELOP ELECTRONIC MODULES

 LEXINGTON, Mass., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Navy has awarded contracts to Raytheon Company(NYSE: RTN) to develop standard electronic modules for a variety of applications.
 One is a $3.6 million contract with the Naval Systems Weapon Center at Crane, Ind., for the development of a module foundry service. The 18- month effort will provide a service that will enable government contractors to design modules to be manufactured at a Raytheon facility. The module foundry service will feature an integrated computer-aided design capability which will accelerate the manufacturing process.
 The foundry will be instituted under an ARPA-sponsored Application Specific Electronic Modules program which focuses on rapidly emerging module technology. Raytheon will develop the capability to mount multichip electronic modules on the company's standard electronic modules, thereby improving the company's competitive position with reference to future module programs.
 Raytheon has also signed a $500,000 contract with the Naval Avionics Weapons Center in Indianapolis to develop a high-density gold connector for use on the next generation of standard electronic modules. Raytheon led a Raytheon/Hughes Aircraft team that responded successfully to the Navy's request for a proposal. The work for both programs will be performed at Raytheon's facility in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a $9 billion international technology company with sales in four business segments: Electronics, Aircraft Products, Energy and Environmental, and Major Appliances.
