Raytheon to Provide Navy with Open Architecture for GPS-Based C4ISR Support

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has won a $32.2 million U.S. Navy contract for the GPS-based positioning, navigation and timing service program for Navy surface and subsurface platforms.

Raytheon will provide an open architecture solution that allows hosting of data in a common computing environment. The company aims to improve the ship’s operability with onboard systems.

GPNTS supports command, control, communications and intelligence systems that require PNT information.

Raytheon IDS will be responsible for the design, development, testing and delivery of GPNTS.

“By leveraging our extensive ship systems and integration experience, we were able to offer an affordable, low-risk solution to our Navy customer, ” said Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems’ Kevin Peppe, vice president of its seapower capability systems.

“Our experience leading large, complex ship integration programs, including LPD 17, DDG 1000 and the open architecture ship self-defense system, makes us uniquely qualified to deliver this critical capability to the fleet.”
