Raytheon, Software Co. Win Technology Contract

Raytheon Co. and Compact Software have been awarded an approximately $4 million contract to develop a computer-based system to aid in the design of high frequency vacuum power tubes in specialized areas including antenna design and computational electromagnetics. The contract is the second phase of a joint Army, Navy and Air Force microwave and millimeter-wave advanced computational environment program (MMACE)—the first phase of which was the implementation of a prototype system now in use in the power tube industry. The goal of MMACE is to combine existing high-frequency power tube design software into a single environment employing standardized modeling, simulation, communications and data processing practices and techniques.

The work will be performed at Raytheon's Missile Systems Division Laboratories.

Other organizations participating in MMACE are NASA, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Hughes Aircraft Corp., ITT, Litton Industries, and Teledyne Corp.
