Raytheon Systems Company

Raytheon Systems Company Our History
Throughout its 75-year history, the Raytheon Company has been a leader in developing defense technologies and in converting those technologies for use in commercial markets. From its early days as a maker of radio tubes, its adaptation of World War II radar technology to inventing microwave cooking, and its development of the first guided missiles, Raytheon has successfully built upon its pioneering tradition to become a global technology leader.

Through strategic acquisitions and mergers, Raytheon has acquired the resources of companies with equally distinguished records of innovation. Breakthroughs include the laser, the Surveyor lunar lander, high resolution satellite imaging of earth resources and magnetic anomaly detection services.

RSC Resume Handling Process
Using a powerful tool called Resumix, we are able to efficiently process all the resumes and cover letters that we receive. Our recruiters across the nation (and Canada) are able to access every resume received, and with an average of 500-800 resumes received each day, we are able to effectively handle our recruitment needs. Since the Resumix software allows us to search the resume database by keywords, our recruiters can easily find what they need.

Who We Are Today
Raytheon Systems Company
With more than $14 billion in annual defense sales in 1997, Raytheon is one of the largest defense contractors in the world today. The third largest contractor, and a pioneer in the conversion of defense technologies for commercial largest U.S. military markets, Raytheon Systems Company is a result of combining four industry giants: Raytheon E-Systems, Raytheon TI Systems, the former Hughes Defense Business and Raytheon Electronic Systems. Raytheon Systems Company is organized around five segments, several of which are large enough individually to be counted among the top 500 companies.

These segments include:

  • Defense Systems (DSS)
    RSC's Defense Systems segment is a world leader in pioneering a new generation of advanced missiles, including the next-generation, short range, air-to-air missile, called the AIM-9X; the Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM); the air-launched Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW); and the Javelin man-portable, anti-armor missile.

  • Sensors and Electronic Systems (SES)
    The RSC Sensors and Electronic systems segment is a leading developer and producer of sophisticated airborne radar systems that are deployed by the U.S. military aboard a range of aircraft, including the F-14, F-15, F/A-18, U-2, AC-13OU, and the B-2, as well as by a number of foreign nations.

  • Command, Control, Communication and Information Systems (C3I)
    One major example of Raytheon's strength in the air defense ground environment is the Peace Shield system, which allows the Royal Saudi Air Force to manage its airborne and ground-based resources. Raytheon has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force for the Command and Control Product Lines program, and is prime contractor for the Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System.

  • Aircraft Integration Systems (AIS)
    The RSC Aircraft Integration Systems (AIS) segment is the leader in modification contracts. In addition, AIS has a strong backlog of commercial and military programs, plus the design and modification of a 747SP for conversion into the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA).

  • Training and Services (T&S)
    RSC's Training and Services segment provides a wide range of scientific, technical and professional services to government agencies and commercial customers, specializing in the operation and maintenance of customer equipment and systems; repair and supply depot operations; engineering, logistics, and personnel support; range support; space and earth sciences; and the privatization of government services.
