Raytheon Submits Final Proposal for USAF GBS Transition Contract

(Colorado Springs, Colo., March 31, 2009) -- Raytheon Company , the 11-year Global Broadcast Service solution provider, has submitted its final proposal for the U.S. Air Force GBS Satellite Broadcast Manager Defense Enterprise Computing Center Transition contract. GBS is a worldwide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support system providing military forces with high-speed, high-volume multimedia broadcasts of intelligence and situational awareness data. The Air Force Electronic Systems Center, Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., will transition GBS broadcast functionality to centralized Defense Information System Agency computing centers and position the system to meet and support the evolving needs of the warfighter. "The Raytheon-led team has provided a low-risk solution to transition this essential capability to the new computing centers by investing in a mission-capable prototype of our GBS DECC solution," said Lynn Dugle, president of Raytheon's Intelligence and Information Systems business. "We have demonstrated the end-to-end GBS DECC capability in our system integration laboratory, which offers the Air Force the best solution to take GBS to the next level as the government continues support to Iraq and efforts in Afghanistan."
