ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Raytheon
Company (NYSE: RTN) will once again have a major presence at the International
Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) trade show in Abu Dhabi. The company
will display a range of new products and technology at the 2013 edition of the
exhibition.

An international technology leader, Raytheon will be highlighting capabilities
across its diverse portfolio of innovative technologies in four key markets:
sensing, effects, C3I and mission support. The company is a world leader in
solutions such as missile defense, radars, precision fires and training.

"Raytheon is proud of its long and sustained relationship with the United Arab
Emirates," said Matt Riddle, president of Raytheon International, Inc. "We
have been in the region for decades as a strong partner and provider of
world-class technology solutions. We look forward to continuing to meet the
needs of our customers across the region to help ensure that their armed
forces are well equipped to address regional security concerns and protect
their citizens."

Raytheon technologies on display at IDEX include:

  oMobile Range, the revolutionary and affordable system that can enhance
    operations at test ranges worldwide.
  oA new clip-on Thermal Weapon Sight -- a compact, lightweight, all-weather,
    infrared imaging device that cuts through battlefield obscurants and
    delivers clear surveillance imagery.
  oAnd TransTalk™, a portable, two-way translation device that automatically
    translates human speech from one language to another; it can be configured
    for any language pair and is designed to facilitate the exchange of
    information across language barriers.

Raytheon also has a strong commitment to education. Through the company's
MathMovesU^® program, Raytheon is providing support to foster student interest
in math and science.

"We understand that to inspire students, we need to engage them when they are
young, support them during critical middle school years, and continue to build
on that support throughout their academic lives," said Riddle. "As a
technology and innovation leader, Raytheon is well positioned to demonstrate
to students the power of math and science and the difference these skills can
make in the real world and to their country's future."

One example is the work Raytheon has undertaken with the UAE Higher Colleges
of Technology and Johns Hopkins University in establishing a Master's Degree
Program in Systems Engineering. Engineers are essential to Raytheon technology
and are equally important to the UAE as they build a robust and diverse
economy for the future.
