Mission Support enables customer success by providing total life-cycle support that predicts customer needs, senses potential problems and proactively responds with the most appropriate solutions. This integrated approach, a natural evolution of Raytheon's world-class, after-sales support of the company's products and systems, delivers a broad array of logistics and support solutions to enhance readiness and deliver superior operational availability for our customers.
Responsive to growing customer demands for a reduced logistics footprint, increased readiness, reduced response time and innovation, and greater cost efficiencies, Mission Support begins with concept development and refinement and extends through modernization and upgrade, harnessing logistics and product support services across Raytheon's businesses. Just as our capabilities have been built over decades of working in partnership with our customers to enhance systems readiness in the field, our mission-centric approach to full-spectrum support involves whole-life partnerships with our customers.
Today, support doesn't begin after initial fielding; it is designed into our systems, leveraging Raytheon's technological expertise in modeling and simulation, supply chain management, performance-based logistics, training and obsolescence management. We are delivering comprehensive, innovative solutions to our customers' ever-changing challenges.
These solutions transcend support of Raytheon's products and enable us to build on our strong position in the growing outsourcing, operations and maintenance market. Fusing information, logistics, transportation and other technologies allows us to provide our customers with vastly improved asset visibility and accessibility, from sources of supply to point of need, so they can confidently complete their missions.
We are dedicated to partnering with customers to provide the right support, at the right place, at the right time and in the right quantities — enhancing our customers' technical and performance capability, enabling them to focus on their primary missions and ensuring mission success. No matter where, when or how customers require support to accomplish their missions, Raytheon is there.
