RPS' Simulation-Based Training solutions receive AHA Endorsement

 American Hospital Association (AHA) endorses Simulation-Based Training solutions

It's not every day that Superman comes calling at Raytheon.

But when the creators of "Man of Steel," the latest Superman movie, needed to make a military command center look as authentic as possible, there was only one place to go for the right communications gear.

Raytheon is a world leader in protected communications, and its handsets are a common sight in the most important U.S. military headquarters (learn more about the phone and protected satellites). The company supplies phones to the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), the Pentagon's National Military Command Center and more than 50 other installations around the world.

"One of the production executives just called me up and said, "Hey, we would like to use your phones as props in the new Superman movie,'" said Lynn Hitchcock, technical director of Secure Communications for Raytheon. "I told him we could do better than just props."

Raytheon shipped some phones to the set. Moviegoers who watch closely can see the gray phones with black and red buttons emblazoned with Raytheon's logo.
