A Raytheon Co. team, which includes Boeing, General Dynamics and AT&T Government Solutions, has been competitively selected by the US Air Force’s MILSATCOM Joint Program Office (MJPO) for a requirement definition contract. Worth up to $9 M including options, the contract is an initial step toward transforming military communications. The win competitively positions Raytheon for a subsequent development program estimated at more than $500 M. The Raytheon team will work with the MJPO to define requirements for the Transformational Communications MILSATCOM (TCM) Network, which will expand the military network capability and interoperability between systems. "Raytheon is proud to partner with the MJPO to ensure that this transformational architecture keeps pace with the intense demand for network communications," said Ray Kolibaba, vice president of Space Systems for Raytheon. "The team is network-focused with space expertise and offers the experience necessary to develop an integrated system of systems for the MJPO by leveraging existing networks and interfaces." The Raytheon MILSATCOM team is based at Raytheon’s Aurora, CO, business campus. Other Raytheon facilities contributing to the contract are in Fullerton, CA, St. Petersburg, FL and Marlboro, MA. Principal teammate support includes AT&T in Oakton, VA, Boeing in Anaheim, CA and General Dynamics in Scottsdale, AZ.
