WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has
been recognized for its commitment to community in The Civic 50 – the first
scientific evaluation to single out S&P 500 companies that best invest their
time, talent and resources to improve the quality of life where they do
business.

The Civic 50 survey was conducted by the National Conference on Citizenship
(NCoC) and Points of Light, leading national experts on civic engagement, and
published in the November 12 issue of Bloomberg Businessweek. The ranking
recognizes companies for transformational corporate citizenship efforts and
encourages businesses to become innovative in their approach. Raytheon was
evaluated on several elements, including leadership, measurement and strategy,
design, "employee civic health," community partnerships, cause alignment and
transparency.

"Raytheon's commitment to corporate responsibility is steadfast and deep –
whether we are sparking student enthusiasm in science, technology, engineering
and math; supporting our armed services; or contributing to our local
communities," said William H. Swanson, Chairman and CEO of Raytheon Company.
"We are honored to be recognized for our commitment to community by Bloomberg,
NCoC and Points of Light. We appreciate their efforts to help businesses
become better stewards of their communities and to challenge us all to
continue to innovate so that future generations may benefit from our actions."

Raytheon has a three-pronged strategic approach to community outreach: math
and science education initiatives, armed services support, and local community
support. The company executes this strategy through programs such as
MathMovesU^®, employee volunteering, and contributions. Raytheon's corporate
responsibility efforts are guided by the company's vision, strategy, goals and
values -- values built on people, integrity, commitment and excellence.
MathMovesU^® is the company's flagship science, technology, engineering and
math (STEM) education program. It takes a holistic approach to addressing the
nation's STEM challenge, connecting with students from elementary school
through college, supporting educators and policymakers, and promoting racial
and gender equality, to make a meaningful, long-term impact, inspiring
