Raytheon Awarded Air Force Contract for GEOINT, Training Support; David Appel Quoted

Raytheon Technologies’ (NYSE: RTX) intelligence and space business will continue to provide geospatial intelligence, training and infrastructure support to the U.S. Air Force’s global communications system under a potential five-year contract.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract includes services for Air National Guard locations across the globe and engineering and mission support for the Distributed Common Ground System baseline, the company said Thursday.

Raytheon Intelligence & Space will team up with the service branch to facilitate the move to the Open Architecture DCGS and support end-to-end operations using its mission domain knowledge.

This award allows us to continue our partnership with the Air Force to facilitate the migration of GEOINT mission support and real-time sensor control to hub-based, open architecture enterprise operations,” said David Appel, vice president of command and control digital solutions for space and C2 systems at RI&S.

This is an example of our commitment to provide automated, common design-enabled offerings to our customers seeking to solve problems, regardless of warfighting domain, platform, or sensor,” added Appel.
