Dave Wajsgras

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has received a potential six-year, $375 million contract from the Air Force Materiel Command to upgrade the baseline software for the Air and Space Operations Center Weapon System.

The AOC WS platform works to help the service branch perform aircraft command-and-control operations at 22 sites worldwide, Raytheon said Wednesday.

The company will also develop and field new AOC WS software updates under the initial contract.

Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services business segment and an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017, said the company will leverage its analytics, automation and cyber knowledge to modernize the military branch’s AOC WS system and ensure security in the digital battlespace.

The company has begun its search for new software developers, system architects, IT help desk and cyber engineers to become a part of a Hampton, Virginia-based team that will work on the AOC WS modernization and sustainment project.
