Raytheon Co. has been selected to enter into negotiation toward an estimated $50 M Future Combat Systems (FCS) contract to serve as Ground System Integrator (GSI).

The announcement of this selection for negotiations was made by FCS Lead System Integrator (LSI), led by Boeing, on behalf of the US Army.

As GSI, Raytheon will develop a sensor architecture and define, select, acquire and integrate sensors to support the US Army's transformational objectives.

The company will collaborate with the Army and the LSI to select the best existing sensors, direct the development of new ones and integrate the sensors in a seamless network, increasing the potential value of this package to several hundred million dollars.

FCS is the defining element of the US Army's Objective Force. FCS employs networking, an array of sensors and information fusion to achieve unprecedented levels of situational awareness and operation synchronization. Its new capabilities - network sensors, advanced command and control, agile platforms and precision effects - will enable the Army to meet changing warfare requirements.
