A fully-owned subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies (previously Raytheon Company) in the U.S., we've been in the UK, in one form or another, for more than 100 years.

Invested in Britain

We are strongly committed to investing in the UK and are ambitious to double the size of our business in the UK in the next five years. Achieving this will involve our continued investment in skills and training as well as people and technology in order to ensure that everyone can share in a secure and productive future.

The increase in data and connectivity is growing exponentially. This brings many positives, but it also brings considerable threats, too. We work with partners in this dynamic environment to ensure we deliver the right solutions.

We work in partnership with UK companies to provide the best solutions in a number of areas including Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance, Security, Cyber and Training. We also commit to using our transatlantic ties to transfer technologies developed in the U.S. that could benefit the UK, such as our training packages.

Raytheon Technologies in the UK and U.S. work with our customers, in many cases, Governments, to provide a high level range of security products and services which enhance their operational performance . We always work within the framework agreements that they have established.

In the UK, we are a strategic and valued partner to the UK Government. In the coming years, as the UK experiences changes to its trading relationships around the world, it is critical to the future security and prosperity of the UK that close working relationships with key allies are maintained. This will involve working together on development programmes that enhance the UK’s economic prosperity while also delivering competitive advantage and operational efficiencies to customers globally.
