Engineering Profile

Paul Bailey
Chief Systems Engineer
Engineering, Technology and Mission Assurance (ET&MA)

Paul Bailey is chief systems engineer for Raytheon Company’s Engineering, Technology and Mission Assurance (ET&MA) organization. In this role, Bailey provides oversight and guidance to system engineering efforts across Raytheon’s businesses. He leverages a broad range of architectures and technologies to address business system challenges and user needs, generating synergy within the systems engineering development organizations. He also leads enterprise reviews of system engineering practices and system engineering aspects of designated watch programs and strategic business captures.

Bailey directs the efforts of Raytheon’s Systems Engineering and Technology Council, interfaces with government personnel for program performance improvements, leads proposal evaluations and assesses system architectures. “I’m continually amazed by the technology being developed across the company and the ability of our engineers to apply it to new and evolving systems,” he states.

For more than 30 years, Bailey has filled a variety of roles, working a wide range of programs. Prior to becoming chief systems engineer, he was technical director of analysis and modeling, responsible for coordinating and expanding operational analysis capabilities enterprisewide to improve Raytheon’s ability to provide system solutions for evolving customer requirements. Prior to corporate ET&MA, he was chief engineer for Integrated Defense Systems’ National and Theater Security Programs (NTSP), where he was responsible for customer satisfaction by delivering technical performance within budget and on schedule and for fostering commonality and cooperation among NTSP and across Raytheon.

Bailey is the first to tell you that he’s “been very fortunate to have worked for and with some truly outstanding engineers during my career.” He served as chief engineer for the Ballistic Missile Defense System Radar program with overall technical responsibility for all aspects of radar development, including architecture definition, system and software requirements and design, ground and flight test, and radar deployment. He represented Raytheon on the U.S. Navy Future Theater Air and Missile Defense working group, defining the requirements for defense systems for the subsequent two decades and charting the course for enabling technology. He started his career as a hardware design engineer with the Missile Guidance Laboratory and continues to provide consulting support to Raytheon missile development and test activities.
