Raytheon Wins Navy Electronic Module Contracts For A Total Of $ 4 . 1 Million

The U.S. Navy has awarded contracts to Raytheon Company 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 (CAD) capability which will accelerate the manufacturing process.

The foundry will be instituted under the ARPA-sponsored Application- Specific Electronic Modules program which focuses on the rapidly emerging module technology.

Raytheon will develop the capability to mount multi-chip 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, R.I.

Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass. is a $9 billion international technology company.
