Raytheon Eyes Hypersonic Defense Capability Expansion Under Missile Systems Unit

TYSONS CORNER, VA, February 5, 2019 — Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) is exploring opportunities to expand its hypersonic defense portfolio within its missile systems business through the development of new sensor and vehicle systems, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

USNI News reported Friday CEO Tom Kennedy indicated during a recent earnings call that the company sees the hypersonic defense market as larger and a longer-term investment area than offensive hypersonics, as Raytheon Missile Systems looks to capture future contracts with the government.

Kennedy, a 2019 Wash100 awardee, cited early-warning sensors and interceptor vehicles as elements of a hypersonic defense system.
