LOS ANGELES -- November 08, 2012

Ducommun Incorporated (NYSE: DCO) has received a follow-on award from Raytheon
Company (NYSE: RTN) to continue providing complex wiring harnesses for the TOW
(tube-launched, optically-tracked, wireless-guided) weapon system. The
contract, worth $3.7 million, extends the Company’s support of the program
through 2013, with production taking place at the Ducommun LaBarge
Technologies facility in Berryville, Ark. Recently, Raytheon named this
operation its first-ever TOW Supplier of the Year.

"We appreciate this important follow-on contract and are proud of the fact
that we have been awarded this supplier distinction, acknowledging our
employees’ outstanding performance and commitment to the TOW program," said
Anthony J. Reardon, chairmen, president and chief executive officer of
Ducommun. "It's our job to find the best manufacturing solutions so that,
together, we can deliver a reliable, quality product.”

TOW is a long-range, anti-armor assault weapon system that includes a family
of attack missiles and is designed to destroy a broad range of targets – from
main battle tanks to reinforced urban fortifications. TOW is currently in
service with more than 40 international armed forces and integrated into over
15,000 ground, vehicle and helicopter platforms worldwide. The TOW system has
been employed by U.S. forces in every conflict since Vietnam and continues to
be used in theater today.
