Raytheon’s vice president of Business Development discusses the future of homeland and regional missile defense.
John Rood, Raytheon’s vice president of Business Development, met with journalists this morning at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to discuss Raytheon’s portfolio of missile defense solutions.
The U.S. Department of Defense has not been immune to the economic challenges our country faces. During this time of difficult budget decisions, Raytheon has identified opportunities where small investments in technology and capability upgrades will significantly enhance our current missile defense systems ensuring that the U.S. can continue to defend the homeland and our allies around the world.
“The U.S.’s current missile defense systems are extraordinary and leveraging them fully is the quickest way to have the broadest, most cost-effective protection in the near term,” said Rood. “As a key player in the missile defense domain, Raytheon is committed to partnering with MDA to ensure that the country’s missile defenses are not jeopardized by budgetary constraints.”
Next week, leaders from both government and industry will come together at the 10th Annual U.S. Missile Defense Conference to discuss the future of homeland and regional missile defense. Today’s briefing gave reporters a first look at Raytheon’s approach to support MDA’s near and long-term strategies.
