Raytheon Appoints Hoeffler VP for DD(x) Program

Tuesday, September 02, 2003
Mike Hoeffler has been appointed vice president of the DD(X) program at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. Hoeffler replaces Jack Cronin, who has been named president of Raytheon Systems Limited (RSL), Raytheon's United Kingdom subsidiary. Under the three-year $1.3 billion contract, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems serves as the weapon and electronic systems integrator for DD(X) -- the transformational next-generation destroyer for the U.S. Navy that will revolutionize naval technology for the 21st century. Hoeffler joined Raytheon in 1969 as an engineer and then moved into program management where he managed a number of military, commercial, and international programs. He has assumed positions of increasing responsibility, including vice president of Raytheon's Command Control Communications and Intelligence (C3I) business with responsibility for managing Raytheon's worldwide air traffic management business. He most recently served as lead for Integrated Defense Systems strategic planning. Hoeffler has masters' degrees in Electrical Engineering and Engineering Management from Northeastern University and a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University. Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems is teamed with program prime Northrop Grumman to lead the National Team designing DD(X). Raytheon is designing, developing, and building engineering development models of key technologies that will be tested at-sea during this phase of the program and then incorporated into DD(X). Technologies developed for DD(X) will be found on all major new ship design and construction projects throughout the 21st century. Ship construction is expected to begin in 2005.
