At Raytheon, innovation takes place all around us; it's part of
our history, drives our future, and can come from anywhere in
the organization. As mentioned in "Technology Today"
,; Issue 1,

is handled by the Intellectual Property & Licensing Department, and the company's intellectual property attorneys.
