EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Dec. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Raytheon Com­pa­ny (NYSE: RTN) booked $50 mil­lion this month in new con­tract awards relat­ed to its elec­tron­ic war­fare (EW) busi­ness.

“For more than 50 years, Raytheon’s EW prod­ucts have earned a rep­u­ta­tion around the world for supe­ri­or per­for­mance and reli­a­bil­i­ty,” said Mark Kula, vice pres­i­dent, Tac­ti­cal Air­borne Sys­tems, for Raytheon Space and Air­borne Sys­tems. “As we look to the future, the elec­tron­ic war­fare mar­ket will evolve to encom­pass intel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance and recon­nais­sance data col­lec­tion and elec­tron­ic attack, and Raytheon is well posi­tioned to par­tic­i­pate at the fore­front of these trends.”
