Raytheon’s commitment to the Middle East is long-standing. With more than 500 employees working in the region, we have provided engineering, project management, sales and services support to regional customers for decades. This has allowed us to develop strong relationships critical to long-term success.
Our partnership began more than 45 years ago with the sale of the Hawk Missile to Saudi Arabian programs. Throughout the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, Hawks were sold to Jordan, Egypt and Kuwait. These missiles helped defend Kuwait against the Iraqi Invasion in August 1990, and helped protect Saudi Arabia during the Persian Gulf War in 1991.
Our commitment continues today with first-in-class solutions for:
- Defense and security initiatives
- Training for education, business and military
- New technology
- Educational initiatives that facilitate workforce skill development and industrial capacity
We also continue to deliver proven expertise in promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). To date, we have developed key partnerships with several educational institutions, including the Higher Colleges of Technology (UAE), Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research (UAE), King Saud University (KSA), and Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (KSA).
