Raytheon marks 20 years of Cooperative Engagement Capability deployment

  • Providing the 'big picture' for naval forces worldwide

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has achieved a significant milestone, marking its 20 th year of Cooperative Engagement Capability deployment onboard U.S. Navy surface ships. CEC has enhanced situational awareness and air and missile defense capabilities since certification in 1996.

CEC brings together multiple sensors to provide high quality situational awareness and integrated fire control capability, improved battle force effectiveness and enables longer range, cooperative, multiple, or layered engagement strategies.


"CEC is a force-multiplier for our warfighters and our allies, sharing critical information among all assets in theatre, increasing the battlegroup's advantage over potential threats," said Raytheon's Pat Speake , director of Integrated Defense Systems' Integrated Mission Systems. "Today's CEC benefits from advancements in commercial and specialized technologies, as well as from the experience and expertise the Raytheon team has gained throughout our 20 years on the program."

Raytheon developed the original networking concepts that have evolved into the real-time, highly adaptable, jam-resistant system deployed today. Working closely with the government-industry team, Raytheon has continuously added capability to CEC, extending its functionality while reducing its size and weight. Raytheon has begun developing the next generation Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based CEC antenna. This high-power Common Array Block antenna increases the system's reliability and efficiency while also reducing its size, weight and cost.

CEC is a core solution within Raytheon's extensive portfolio of comprehensive, integrated mission capabilities which enable any naval ship to detect, control and engage any threat, whether from the air, surface or undersea. From radars and sonars, navigation, combat management and sensor networking, to weapon and missile integration, Raytheon's platform- and system-agnostic systems and integration expertise enable U.S. and coalition navies to confidently, effectively and affordably achieve mission success.
