Raytheon Wins Non-Lethal Weapons Solid-State Source Contract

(Tewksbury, Mass., March 11, 2009) -- Raytheon Company's Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) business has been awarded a phase-two contract to develop a gallium nitride (GaN) solid-state source for use in non-lethal weapons.

The award was made by the Defense Department's Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate (JNLWD).


Raytheon's GaN technology enables revolutionary performance and functionality for a wide range of DoD systems to include radar, electronic warfare and communications.

"Our support of the JNLWD is for very high frequency, millimeter-wave GaN to provide the warfighter with a lower-cost, lighter-weight, non-lethal engagement alternative," said Michael Del Checcolo, vice president of Engineering for Raytheon IDS.
