2010 Raytheon Excellence in Engineering and Technology Awards
Sixty-seven Raytheon engineers and technologists were honored for outstanding contributions to Raytheon’s innovation legacy at the 2012 Excellence in Engineering and Technology (EiET) Awards event which was held at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., on January 30, 2013.
“The EiET awards represent Raytheon’s highest technical honor,” remarked Mark E. Russell, vice president, Engineering, Technology and Mission Assurance. Comparing the award-winners’ achievements to those demonstrated by the countless exhibits at the museum, Russell said, “You have pushed beyond the limits of technology to solve our customers’ most challenging problems.” Validating Raytheon’s recognized leadership in technology and innovation, Russell also noted Raytheon BBN’s recent National Medal of Technology and Innovation Award for making lasting contributions to America’s competitiveness.
After dinner, Raytheon Chairman and CEO William H. Swanson thanked and congratulated the award recipients, “For your tremendous efforts on behalf of our customers and our company. It’s an honor to recognize and celebrate your exceptional achievements in engineering and technology.”
Retired Marine Corps General John R. Dailey, director of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, hosted the event. Dailey has been instrumental in expanding the size and scope of the museum to increase public outreach.
Seventeen awards, listed below, were presented: 12 team awards, including one “One Company” award and one Information Technology team award; and five individual awards.
