Raytheon – now known as Raytheon Technologies Corporation – finalized a
merger agreement with United Technologies Corp (UTC) in April 2020 that was
rumored to be valued at $135 billion1. Although the merged company
retained the Raytheon name, the Raytheon Company in fact became a wholly-owned
subsidiary of UTC and UTC was renamed "Raytheon Technologies Corporation."
This "all-stock merger of equals" effectively created a "premier
systems provider" to address the aerospace and defense segments, in addition
to expanding access to their complimentary portfolios, technology base, R&D
capabilities, and other enhanced resources and financial flexibility. The company
is a top defense contractor in the world, with a presence in 54 countries (2021).
Specializing in the defense, security, and civil markets, the firm has 174,000
employees worldwide (2021), including 58,000 engineers. Today, Raytheon serves a
broad range of US-based and international clients, primarily as a prime contractor,
and offers defense and related programs for its government customers.
Post-merger, Raytheon’s primary operations now include:
- Collins Aerospace – Aerospace and defense products
- Pratt & Whitney – Aerospace and global services
- Raytheon Intelligence & Space – Intelligence information and services, as well as space and airborne systems
- Raytheon Missiles & Defense – Air and missile defense systems, precision weapons, radars, and command and control systems
As part of the transaction, the companies also divested Raytheon’s military airborne radios business and UTC’s military GPS and Space Optical
Systems businesses, with United also agreeing to effect the separations of its
Otis and Carrier businesses into separate, publicly-traded companies.
History & Milestone Events
Raytheon’s history spans 92 years and includes a portfolio that is designed to address the many different aspects
of “C4ISR” (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance).
This includes electronics, mission-systems integration, and other capabilities in the areas of sensing, effects,
C3I (command, control, communications, and intelligence systems), and cyber, as well as many different
types of mission-support services. The company was founded on July 7, 1922, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as the
American Appliance Company. The original founders included Vannevar Bush, later the dean of MIT’s School of
Engineering; Laurence Marshall, an engineer; and Charles G. Smith, a scientist specializing in the electrical
properties of gases.
The defense contractor refers to itself as “one of the earliest technology start-ups.” It lived up to this name
by launching its first product, the S gas rectifier tube, a component designed to allow home radios to be powered
by an electrical outlet with considerably less hardware required. It was not until World War II that the company
truly entered the defense contracting market. Its first forays occurred when its employees joined the war effort
by providing 80 percent of the magnetron tubes used in US and British radar deployments. This military product
would dovetail into one of the company’s greatest consumer successes, the microwave oven. Although its success
in the appliance market continued through the mid-twentieth century, Raytheon began to transform into the company
it is today during the 1950s.
As a military contractor, the company successfully tested the first ground-to-air missile with an automated
onboard guidance system, the Lark Missile, in 1950. This would become the first in a long line of guided missile
systems, which Raytheon continues to produce even today. Other milestones in Raytheon’s past include providing
the computer and transmitters for the Apollo 11 moon mission, providing many of the munitions deployed by the
US military during the Vietnam War, and developing the first ballistic missile countermeasure, the Patriot Missile

Raytheon’s strategy is to focus on technology, innovation, and mission
assurance for existing and evolving customer needs, as well as to sustain and
grow its position in core markets such as sensing, effects, C4ISR (command,
control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and
reconnaissance), and cyber. Aspects of Raytheon’s strategy include:
- Building on areas of strength within key mission areas.
- Focusing additional resources on emerging opportunities within the
Department of Defense market.
- Engaging key countries as individual markets with multiple customers.
- Extending advanced cyber technology beyond the US government and into
international and commercial markets.
Raytheon believes that its broad mix of technology, domain expertise, and key
capabilities – as well as its ability to align these strengths with customer
needs – positions it to favorably grow in all of its areas. The firm is
generally regarded as a technology and innovation leader in the markets for
government defense, civil government, and cybersecurity solutions. The company
is also a top vendor for government contracts that provide electronics, mission
systems, integration, C4I products and services, sensing, effects, and
mission-support services. Full-year net sales totaled more than $64 billion
Raytheon’s global team works to "make the world a safer place" by
specializing in contracts for missile defense, command and control, sensors and
imaging, cyber, electronic warfare, precision weapons, training, and mission
support. This portfolio expansiveness allows Raytheon to stand out from many of
- Global Economic, Capital Market and Political Conditions. Given 2022’s inflationary pressures
both in the US and in other countries, Raytheon expects to experience labor and material cost increases at a rate
higher than that experienced in recent years. Due to the nature of government and commercial aerospace businesses,
and the customer and supplier contracts within those businesses, the company may not be able to increase its contract
value or pricing, in particular on fixed price contracts, to offset such cost increases.
- COVID-19 Continues to Affect Business, Supply Chain, and Operations. The decrease in air travel
is adversely affecting airline customers and the demand for Raytheon’s products and services. Aircraft manufacturers
have reduced production rates and cancelled new programs; as a result, the demand for original equipment manufacturer
(OEM) products has decreased. In addition, significant declines in aircraft flight hours have resulted in reduced demand
for aftermarket parts and services. Border closings, lockdowns, and labor shortages have also negatively impacted global
supply and distribution capabilities while increasing the cost of supplies and creating delivery issues resulting in
shortages and delays in the procurement of raw materials, components, and other supplies.
- Dependence on US and Foreign Government Contracts. Significant changes in US government defense
spending could have an adverse effect on the company’s operations. Such changes could be the result of government policies,
regulations, budget decisions, and the appropriations process. Similarly, since Raytheon conducts business on a global basis
with a significant portion of sales derived from international operations, changes in local and regional economic conditions,
including fluctuations in exchange rates, may affect product demand and reported profits for its non-US operations.
- Recruitment and Retention of Qualified Personnel. The specialized nature of Raytheon’s business makes
it highly dependent on the continued services of key technical personnel and executive officers, the development of additional
management personnel, and the hiring of new qualified technical, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and management staff for its
operations. Not only is the competition for such personnel intense, but the company may continue to experience personnel
reductions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact. In addition, a significant percentage of the current workforce is
nearing or eligible for retirement. To the extent that Raytheon loses experienced personnel, it is critical to develop other
employees, hire new qualified personnel, and successfully manage the transfer of critical knowledge.
In the company’s 2021 annual report, CEO Greg Hayes stated, "Looking ahead, we anticipate sustained progress across the
entire company. As our defense business extends its steady growth, we are also positioned to further capitalize as commercial
aviation travel continues to recover, though disparate vaccination rates and COVID-19 variants still pose risks. And I am
confident that our investments in technology, innovation and operational excellence will continue to drive success far into
Raytheon Technologies has identified three key areas that it feels are prime for innovation: smarter defense systems,
intelligent space technologies, and sustainable, more connected flight.
Among the defense systems the company is currently developing, a partnership between Raytheon Missiles & Defense (RMD) and
Northrop Grumman completed the first successful flight test of a scramjet-powered hypersonic weapon, which achieved sustained
speeds of Mach 5 (five times the speed of sound). In addition, RMD also began installation of the AN/SPY-6(V)1 radar it delivered
last year to the US Navy destroyer USS Jack H. Lucas. This technology will enable Navy ships to see further and react more quickly
to imminent threats.
Investment in space solutions is aimed to increase an understanding of the planet, advance defense capabilities, and create
opportunities for greater civilian space exploration. Raytheon Intelligence & Space’s Blackjack sensor is a low-Earth orbit
satellite constellation program providing global coverage against advanced threats. It is currently on track to meet the Defense
Advanced Research Project Agency’s rapid delivery schedule. Collins Aerospace, meanwhile, has been tasked to design a next-generation
spacesuit for astronauts on current International Space Station missions, future NASA Artemis missions to the moon, and commercial
Focusing on the commercial aviation industry, the Pratt & Whitney division announced its new GTF Advantage engine that is designed
to be the world’s most fuel-efficient and sustainable single-aisle aircraft engine, delivering a 17 percent reduction in fuel
consumption and CO2 emissions versus previous generation engines. It will also be compatible with 100 percent sustainable aviation
fuels when it enters service. Additionally, Collins is collaborating with Pratt & Whitney and the governments of Quebec and Canada
on a hybrid-electric propulsion flight demonstrator.
Meanwhile, the company remains intent on reducing structural costs, increasing its post-merger gross cost-synergy target from
$1 billion to $1.5 billion while opening two major new facilities – an Advanced Integration and Manufacturing Center in McKinney,
Texas, designed to fully incorporate digital transformation including automated manufacturing tools and an ISO 7 clean room, and
a new turbine airfoil production facility in Asheville, North Carolina, that is scheduled to open in 2022.

Raytheon provides its training outsourcing and performance-consulting services
in over 100 countries.
Raytheon directly participates in most major areas
of development in the defense and government electronics, space, IT, and
technical services and support markets. The company competes worldwide with
a number of US and international companies in those markets. Since the beginning of the current
military-industrial complex, contractors have been attempting to outperform
and underbid one another for the military and defense contracts handed out
by various government agencies and armed forces branches. Although no two
defense contractors offer the exact same products and services, there is an
overlap among the major players in the industry.
As a result, Raytheon aggressively jockeys for contracts under a
competitive bidding and/or demonstration process. Other top
vendors in this area include Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, and
General Dynamics. Some of Raytheon’s top competitors include:

A hypersonic cruise missile co-developed by Raytheon Technologies and Northrop
Grumman has passed its second flight test in a row – an important milestone in the US Department of Defense’s plan
to field weapons that travel faster than five times the speed of sound. The test, conducted in July 2022, featured
a Hypersonic Air-breathing Weapon Concept, with minor improvements informed by its earlier successful test in
September 2021. Its performance in the most recent test – it dropped from an aircraft and accelerated beyond Mach 5 –
met the predictions of the company’s data models.
Raytheon Intelligence & Space, a Raytheon Technologies business, recently
delivered the Initial Operating Capability for the Global Aircrew Strategic Network Terminal system, or Global
ASNT, to the US Air Force. Global ASNT ensures robust communications to nuclear bomber, missile, and support
aircraft crews in austere environments. The Global ASNT capability will be critical to enable joint connectivity
in the highly contested battlespace, supporting the US Department of Defense’s vision for Nuclear Command, Control,
and Communications, or NC3, and Joint All Domain Command and Control, also known as JADC2.
In the development of electric aircraft, Collins Aerospace has produced the first working prototype of its
500 kilowatt electric motor suitable for the Airlander 10 aircraft under a partnership with Hybrid Air Vehicles
and the University of Nottingham. For the 2,000 RPM permanent magnet electric motor, Collins is targeting specific
power density levels of 9 kilowatts per kilogram and 98 percent efficiency through the use of a novel motor topology
and composite construction. The motor is being designed at the Collins Electronic Controls and Motor Systems Center
of Excellence in Solihull, UK, where it is also developing its one megawatt electric motor and motor controller for
the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) regional hybrid-electric flight demonstrator. The two motors are part of Collins’
technology roadmap for the development of a family of electric motors that can be scaled up or down to meet the needs
of various hybrid-electric and all-electric applications across multiple aircraft segments. Airlander 10 is scheduled
to begin hybrid-electric operation in 2026, followed by all-electric, zero-emission operation in 2030. To achieve this,
the aircraft’s four fuel-burning engines will be replaced by Collins’ 500 kilowatt electric motors — beginning with
the two forward engines in 2026 and the two rear engines in 2030.
Raytheon Technologies has been selected by the US Department of Energy for two
research and development projects to test the use of hydrogen and ammonia as effective, zero-carbon options for
electricity generation. Under the first project, Raytheon will validate the capacity to operate Mitsubishi Power
Aero’s FT4000 gas turbine unit using hydrogen and hydrogen blends as fuel sources. The FT4000 is a land-based variant
of Pratt & Whitney’s PW4000 turbofan aircraft engine. The hydrogen fuel test will complement work occurring in another
development project called the Hydrogen Steam Injected, Inter-Cooled Turbine Engine (HySIITE) project. HySIITE, also
supported by the Energy Department, is a Pratt & Whitney-led effort to develop hydrogen-fueled propulsion technology
applicable to single-aisle commercial aircraft. Raytheon Technologies will work with the University of Connecticut
School of Engineering on the second Energy Department project to focus on the use of ammonia – which is composed of
mostly hydrogen – as a zero-carbon fuel for power-generating turbines. Using ammonia presents several advantages including
a pre-existing production and transportation infrastructure that requires much less refrigeration in comparison to hydrogen,
and the ability to easily store it as a liquid.
Small satellite manufacturer and mission services provider Blue Canyon Technologies, a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Raytheon Technologies, announced the launch of Slingshot 1, MISR-B, and a government
customer satellite, aboard Virgin Orbit on July 1, 2022. Slingshot 1 is the first-ever Blue Canyon 12U CubeSat bus
carrying 19 payloads to low Earth orbit. Built for Aerospace Corporation, the mission will demonstrate the accessibility
of integrating numerous payloads into a single interface.
The Missile Defense Agency has selected Raytheon Missiles & Defense to continue to develop a first-of-its-kind
counter-hypersonic missile, the Glide Phase Interceptor. GPI is designed to intercept hypersonic weapons in the
glide phase of flight, providing the US and allies with an additional layer of defense against regional hypersonic
missile threats. This firm fixed price Other Transaction Agreement modification, valued at $41 million, increases
the total value to $62 million and allows Raytheon Missiles & Defense to continue maturing its GPI design using
advanced materials and technology required to intercept a hypersonic threat. This phase will also finalize systems
requirements and support accelerated development timelines.
Raytheon Missiles & Defense has been awarded an $867 million Missile Defense Agency contract to deliver SM-3Block IIAs
to the United States and partners. The SM-3 interceptor is a defensive weapon the US Navy uses to destroy short- to
intermediate-range ballistic missiles. The interceptor uses sheer force, rather than an explosive warhead, to destroy
targets in space. Its "kill vehicle" hits threats with the force of a 10-ton truck traveling 600 mph. This
technique, referred to as "hit-to-kill," has been likened to intercepting a bullet with another bullet.
The interceptor is being carried by US Navy ships deployed off Europe’s coast and is now operational at a land-based
site in Romania.
Collins Aerospace, a Raytheon Technologies business – along with teammates
ILC Dover and Oceaneering – have been selected to produce NASA’s next-generation spacesuit, which astronauts could
wear when working outside the International Space Station and – within the next decade – on the moon. The new suits
were designed by astronauts for astronauts and offer enhanced mobility and weigh less than the current generation
spacesuits, allowing for increased mission times. The suits are also designed to accommodate nearly every astronaut
body type and can rapidly incorporate new technologies.
Raytheon Missiles & Defense has been awarded a $423 million contract to continue to produce SPY-6 radars for the US Navy.
This is the first option exercised from the March 2022 hardware, production, and sustainment contract that is valued up to
$3.16 billion over five years. The SPY-6 family of radars can defend against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, hostile
aircraft, and surface ships simultaneously. They provide several advantages over legacy radars, including significantly
greater detection range, increased sensitivity, and more accurate discrimination. Their scalable and modular radar arrays
reduce cost and sustainment needs, while meeting the mission requirements of seven classes of ships.
A Raytheon BBN-led team will develop an artificial intelligence tool, Medical Assistance, Guidance, Instruction and Correction,
or MAGIC, to assist combat field medics in more than four dozen medical skills applied during common procedures. The medical
assistant is being developed under a DARPA award. The tool will provide real-time, hands-free guidance for 50-different procedures to
increase proficiency and help reduce treatment errors in challenging environments. It will also enable medics to focus their efforts
using AI and Augmented Reality. The first demonstration of the new tool is planned in 18 months. Raytheon says that training data
collected for the program will be shared with the research community.
The US Navy awarded Raytheon Missiles & Defense, a Raytheon Technologies an activation, sustainment, and modernization contract for
$483 million with options, if exercised, totaling $1.68 billion across five years. Under this contract, Raytheon will provide the Navy
services and professionals to complete the activation and fleet introduction of the three Zumwalt-class destroyers, while continuing to
develop technology and warfare capabilities. Additional services will include design, integration, test and evaluation, system upgrade
and replacement, logistics product development, configuration management, and training systems.
Raytheon Missiles & Defense has been selected by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) as one of the companies to develop
and test the first interceptor specifically designed to defeat hypersonic threats. The weapon, called Glide Phase Interceptor
(GPI), will defeat a new generation of hypersonic missiles – weapons that travel more than five times the speed of sound and
maneuver rapidly in flight. GPI will intercept hypersonic weapons in the glide phase of flight, which occurs once a missile
has re-entered Earth’s atmosphere and is maneuvering toward its target. The initial development phase will focus on reducing
technical risk, rapidly developing technology, and demonstrating the ability to intercept a hypersonic threat. Developed on
behalf of the MDA, GPI will be integrated into the US Navy’s Aegis Weapon System, a ship- and shore-based defense system.
