Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has acquired a privately held company, Visual Analytics Incorporated, further extending Raytheon's capabilities to meet the data analytics, data visualization and information sharing needs of its customers. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Under IIS with the new name of Raytheon Visual Analytics, the Frederick, Md.-based business will retain the services of CEO and co-founder Chris Westphal as its general manager, while president and co-founder David O'Connor will continue as chief technology officer.
