Raytheon establishes UK Cyber Innovation Centre


UXBRIDGE, England, Dec. 2, 2014 /Raytheon


New cyber research, development and testing centre brings jobs to UK and extends the reach of Raytheon's network of cyber centres


Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) is broadening its network of cyber research capability globally with the creation of a Cyber Innovation Centre (CIC) based in the South-West of England. The centre continues Raytheon's investment and growth in the UK and will provide development and test capability against current and emerging global cybersecurity threats. The centre is expected to open soon, housing over 100 cyber specialists who will work with a wide range of governmental and commercial customers to solve their complex cybersecurity challenges.

Operating as a research, development and innovation hub, the CIC will enable Raytheon to work with its partners on projects and demonstrations while extending the company's deep cyber expertise to other international locations. The facility joins Raytheon's global network of cyber centres and will focus on cyber and information assurance projects utilising the company's decades of experience, nation-scale capability and global partnerships.

"The new facility marks a significant investment of financial and intellectual capital for Raytheon in the UK, and continues the growth and capability expansion of our intelligence and security business," said Richard Daniel, chief executive, Raytheon UK. "Our end-to-end cyber capabilities include cyber defence solutions to address insider threats, counter intelligence, data analytics and secure information sharing. Raytheon's CIC will partner with field experts, academia and prime contractors to provide leading software development and vulnerability research services to help customers become resilient and operate with confidence in cyber space."

Raytheon will provide its expertise in detecting internal and external threats to information technology systems and deliver rapid threat response, advanced persistent threat defence, as well as business processes to address cyber threats. While providing a broader global cybersecurity capability, the centre is expected to have a benefit to the UK by helping to develop a workforce with high-demand skills and expertise in the growing cyber sector.

"The cyber threat extends globally and the opportunities for innovative solutions are global as well," said Lynn Dugle, president, Raytheon's Intelligence, Information and Services business. "The UK Cyber Centre expands Raytheon's network of global cyber capability and innovation centres while tapping into UK's strong talent pool as we defend some of the world's most sophisticated networks against very complex threats."

Seconds-out for Cassius UAV

Sept. 17, 2013 by Craig Hoyle – FG


London - Cranfield Aerospace and Raytheon UK are testing a new lightweight unmanned air system, which is now being promoted to potential buyers.


Aimed at the military intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance market, but also potentially suitable for a range of civilian applications, Cassius features a high level of autonomy, says Cranfield business adviser Keith Marshall.


"The operator just has to check if the weather conditions are within launch tolerance and find the wind direction, then after launch all they have to do is 'fly' the sensor," Marshall says.


First flown around two months ago and exhibited for the first time at the 10-13 September DSEi show in London, Cassius has a maximum take-off weight of 8.75kg (19.3lb), including a Raytheon-sourced electro-optical/infrared sensor payload. Flight endurance is in excess of 3h, and service ceiling above 5,000ft (1,520m).


"We have had a lot of interest, including with international customers," Marshall says. Civilian applications could include performing border or environmental monitoring tasks, he adds.


Flight-testing with the system is continuing, with the partners seeking to complete an initial 50h of activity.


"In the not too distant future there will be more UAS," says Phil Nettleship, chief of engineering at Raytheon UK's Airborne Solutions unit. "As a group, we have an interest in this sector."

Raytheon UK has taken its first order for a pre-production MiniGAS, the latest in GPS Anti-Jam technology, designed and manufactured by the company in the U.K. This contract, awarded by an undisclosed customer, requires Raytheon UK to produce demonstrator units for customer evaluation.


MiniGAS is the latest in Raytheon's GPS Anti-Jam family of products, and it aims to be the lightest and smallest GPS Anti-Jamming system produced by Raytheon UK. It will have flexible form factors, suited to land, unmanned aerial vehicles and missile platforms. Raytheon is also producing demonstration units of its Landshield high performance digital Anti-Jam product for customer evaluation.


As well as developing new products, Raytheon has also received an order for a further 100 of its Advanced Digital Antenna Production (ADAP) systems with the U.S. government. To date, more than 500 ADAP systems and more than 6,600 GAS-1 systems have been delivered to the U.S. government and other international customers over the course of 15 years.


Richard Daniel, defense director for Raytheon UK, said: "Raytheon UK is a world leader in the production and supply of GPS Anti-Jamming systems to the majority of the world's military forces. These contracts and milestones demonstrate that we continue to make advancements in new systems, ensuring that Raytheon's systems continue to meet the latest platform requirements."


Raytheon continues to deliver GPS Anti-Jam systems to Northrop Grumman Italia to be used in the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft, and the company has also delivered a significant number of systems for the Airbus Military A400M aircraft. The company also completed the delivery of its first order for its latest GPS Anti-Jam Land product to the UK Ministry of Defence within six months of contract award.
