"The Sentinel fleet is well-recognised for the outstanding contribution it has made to military and surveillance operations around the globe over the last nine years," said Richard Daniel, chief executive officer of Raytheon U.K.  "As well as creating new jobs in Broughton, the extension of the Sentinel fleet will support several hundred highly skilled jobs within Raytheon and its supply chain, while maintaining world leading expertise in the customer community."

Raytheon U.K., supported by the Welsh Government, has invested in a new hangar at Broughton to ensure that its Airborne ISR, for Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance, continues to provide end-to-end, design-to-flight-trials capability for improved operational availability. The new investment will allow Raytheon U.K. to undertake export work as well as to optimise Sentinel support, resulting in considerably reduced time and cost of 8C deep maintenance checks.

The full range of Raytheon's technical support for the Sentinel fleet includes fleet management, maintenance planning, maintenance service, technical and engineering services, obsolescence management, air vehicle integrity, supply and procurement service, training, design service and overarching service management.
