Raytheon Wins DISA Contract for Information Network Engineering

Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) won a Defense Information Systems Agency contract to provide engineering services for a global information sharing network, the company announced Monday.

This contract extends the company’s support of the Combined Federated Battle Laboratories Network for another five years.

The Waltham, Mass.-based contractor has supported the network for nearly a decade.

The company will continue to install and integrate the computer network used for research, test and evaluation.

U.S. and coalition forces use the network to test information sharing capabilities before using them in operational networks for combatant commands.

The network originally supported a single testing event and now supports year-round, multinational testing in multiple security domains.

The company is also developing radar software for the U.S. Navy and international governments under a nearly $48.6 million task order awarded in early March.

Work under that indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract should finish by February 2017.
