Raytheon has a long-standing relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, beginning more than 45 years ago with their purchase and fielding of Hawk, Raytheon’s combat-proven, medium-range air defense system.
Raytheon’s business partnership with the Kingdom laid the groundwork for Saudi being among the early partner-nations to purchase the combat-proven Patriot in 1990 to protect the Kingdom's critical assets.
Recently, Raytheon received a $1.7 billion contract to upgrade Saudi Arabia’s Patriot Air and Missile Defense System to the latest Configuration-3. The award includes ground-system hardware, a full training package and support equipment upgrades.
Raytheon has provided and supports many of Saudi’s defense systems, and has a significant presence in-country. Raytheon’s Saudi Arabian IAMD Programs provide services, training and hardware for the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces. Raytheon employs U.S. citizens in Saudi Arabia on either accompanied or unaccompanied assignments, living and working in Jeddah. The work force includes Saudi nationals.
Raytheon’s long-term relationship with the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces is based on product quality, skilled services, innovation and customer value. For those seeking opportunities to continue this relationship, see this link (to Rayjobs).
