Raytheon: A short history
For more than 75 years the Raytheon Company has been a leader in developing
defense technologies and in converting those technologies for use in commercial
markets. From its early days as a maker of radio tubes, its adaptation of World War II
radar technology to invent microwave cooking, and its development of the first

guided missiles, Raytheon has successfully built on its pioneering tradition to become a global technology leader. Through strategic acquisitions and mergers, Raytheon has acquired the resources of companies with equally distinguished records of innovation. Breakthroughs include the laser, the Surveyor lunar lander, high resolution satellite

imaging of earth resources and magnetic anomaly detection services.
Today, Raytheon is focused on three core business segments: defense and
commercial electronics; business aviation and special mission aircraft; and

engineering and construction. Raytheon is a top-tier player in each of these segments. Each provides the company with the capabilities it needs to build on its strength as an innovator and to prosper in a highly competitive global economy.

Raytheon's $9.5 billion merger with Hughes defense operations in 1997 and the
creation of Raytheon Systems Company mark an important milestone in the
company's history. Built on the combined forces of Raytheon Electronic Systems,

Raytheon E-Systems, and Hughes and Texas Instruments' defense operations,
Raytheon Systems Company is now fully equipped to meet the needs of its customers
and employees\ue000 well into the 21st century.
