The Raytheon Company’s Announcements; August 2019


(El Segundo, CA and Tucson, AZ) The U.S. defense contractor and industrial corporation, The Raytheon Company, continues to do what it does best.  Receive U.S. Government contracts, is what it does best.  Additionally, its prowess when it comes to these types of matters, is undisputed.  Coincidentally and in early June 2019, The Raytheon Company announced a merger.  The merger will be with, the United Technologies Corporation.  The new name of the business, post-merger will be, Raytheon Technologies.  Recently, The Raytheon Company announced that, its most recent work is now officially announcements.  Specifically; the aforementioned business revealed that, it has obtained contracts to do work for N.A.S.A., and, the U.S. Navy.  The work for N.A.S.A. is building a G.L.I.M.R. sensor.  Meanwhile, the work for the U.S. Navy is production of E.S.S.M. Block 2 Missiles.  Overall, these previous two things make up The Raytheon Company’s announcements, for August 2019. 
            The August 2019 announcements, according to The Raytheon Company, are in fact two things.  As previously said, these two things are contracts to do work for N.A.S.A., and, the U.S. Navy.  Continuing with this line of thought, the building of a G.L.I.M.R. sensor is the contracted work for N.A.S.A.  Additionally, the end point is being placed on a N.A.S.A. satellite.  As part of the satellite, the G.L.I.M.R. sensor will measure coastal and ocean ecosystems.  G.L.I.M.R. is an acronym that means Geostationary Littoral Imaging and Monitoring Radiometer.  Technically, the contract to build is a contract, from the University of New Hampshire.  Regrettably, the financial terms were not disclosed.  The satellite, is a crucial part of N.A.S.A.’s selected Earth Venture Instrument-5 Investigation.  Additionally, this satellite will become the first hyperspectral imager in geostationary orbit (GEO Orbit).
            Continuing with, hyperspectral imaging, the aforementioned is imaging collection.  The images are also processed information, which are obtained from the electromagnetic spectrum.  The spectrum includes visible light, infrared frequencies and ultraviolet frequencies.  The end result, is a highly detailed view of physical and biological conditions, of coastal waters.  Additionally, obtaining measurements is a possibility.  For N.A.S.A.’s selected Earth Venture Instrument-5 Investigation, the following is planned to be studied.  Coastal and ocean ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico, the Southeastern U.S. coastline and the Amazon River are planned to be studied. 
            Returning to, the contract work for the U.S. Navy, the aforementioned is a low rate initial production.  This low rate initial production contract, has a value of $190 million USD.  Additionally, it is for E.S.S.M. Block 2 Missiles.  The purpose for the production, is a new guidance system.  The new guidance system; has a dual mode active radar, and, semi-active radar.  The initial operating capability is planned, for the year 2020.  Specifically, the E.S.S.M. Block 2 Missile is a primary ship self-defense missile.  It is commonly used on aircraft carriers, and, large deck amphibious assault ships.  The E.S.S.M. Block 2 Missile is an intermediate range, surface to air missile.  Interestingly, the E.S.S.M. Block 2 Missile is operational on almost 200, naval platforms worldwide.  As a program, the E.S.S.M. Program is a cooperative effort of 12 N.A.T.O. countries.  These 12 countries are; Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Greece, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and the United States of America. 
            To end, The Raytheon Company (NYSE:  RTN) did release press statements.  Jeff Puschell is the G.L.I.M.R. Instrument Scientist and Principal Engineering Fellow at Raytheon Space Systems of The Raytheon Company.  Through a press statement, Mr. Puschell said the following.  “GLIMR will collect the sharpest and most colorful view of physical and biological conditions in coastal waters ever seen from GEO.  A hyperspectral imager is essential technology to capture new insight about our changing coastal ecosystems.”  Dr. Mitch Stevison is the Vice President of Strategic and Naval Systems at The Raytheon Company.  Through a press statement, Dr. Stevison said the following.  “ESSM plays a critical role in protecting navy sailors worldwide and our international partners share our commitment to evolve this missile.”  As previously stated, The Raytheon Company recently announced that, its most recent work is now officially announcements.  Specifically; the aforementioned business revealed that, it has obtained contracts to do work for N.A.S.A., and, the U.S. Navy.  The work for N.A.S.A. is building a G.L.I.M.R. sensor.  Meanwhile, the work for the U.S. Navy is production of E.S.S.M. Block 2 Missiles.  Lastly and overall, these previous two things make up The Raytheon Company’s announcements, for August 2019.
