Raytheon Purchases Md. Cybersecurity, Enterprise Architecture Developer

Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) has acquired Columbia, Md.-based cybersecurity, enterprise architecture and systems engineering firm Henggeler Computer Consultants for an undisclosed amount.

Raytheon’s announcement said the company does not expect the deal to affect total sales or earnings per share in its 2012 fiscal year. It is Raytheon’s second cybersecurity purchase this month and 10th since 2007.

Henggeler develops enterprise architecture, analytics, software and cloud-based solutions for intelligence systems. Raytheon intends for the deal to increase business with the intelligence community and Defense Department.

Henggeler founder and president Dick Henggeler will stay on with Raytheon. Outside of its Columbia, Md. base, Henggeler also has offices in Anapolis Junction, Md., where Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) recently opened a cybersecurity center for research, development and analytics.

On Dec. 5 Raytheon acquired cybersecurity forensics and software provider Pikewerks Corp. and will retain that company’s CEO Michael Ring and its president and founder Sandy Ring.
