Destination: Space Symposium
Raytheon shows its wide-ranging expertise at the galaxy’s premier space conference
Space? We've got it covered.
Raytheon is displaying its wide-ranging space expertise at the 32nd annual Space Symposium, April 11-14 in Colorado Springs. Billed as “the premier global, commercial, civil, military and emergent space conference," the event is a showcase for advanced technology and extraterrestrial services.
That includes Raytheon, with its unique, end-to-end expertise. The Raytheon booth (#233) features a seven-foot-high wall with an interactive visualization of Raytheon’s space value chain, including astronaut training support, space launch range management, satellite instruments, science data analysis, monitoring of space threats and dissemination of information to the military and intelligence communities.
Because Raytheon’s capabilities span the space domain, the company can lower overall mission costs, optimize effectiveness and better protect information, systems and people. Greater mission understanding leads to benefits such as early missile warning, advanced weather forecasting, accurate natural resource monitoring and secure GPS.
Here is a sampling of stories that demonstrate Raytheon’s end-to-end space expertise:
