TEWKSBURY, Mass., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN)
has delivered the first High Mobility Launcher (HML) for Norway's National
Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) to provide Norway with
advanced air defense capability. When time is of the essence to protect
high-value assets and populations, the HML significantly reduces the time
required to transport and ready the system.

"The Royal Norwegian Air Force is the first international NASAMS customer to
receive this highly mobile solution that can be easily rolled on and off a
C-130," said Sanjay Kapoor, vice president of Integrated Air and Missile
Defense for Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) business. "This is an
important milestone for Raytheon and our partner KONGSBERG because of the
transportability, safety and security it brings to the maneuvering forces when
countering evolving threats."

The new HML has the modern NASAMS electronics that the Norwegian Air Force
will soon be installing and upgrading in its existing fleet of canister
launchers. The resulting commonality will help reduce maintenance and
lifecycle costs. The modern package includes GPS and north-finding
instrumentation for quicker system placement and positioning in the
battlefield and increased target engagement accuracy. In addition to Norway
and an undisclosed customer, the Raytheon-KONGSBERG NASAMS is currently
deployed in Finland, the Netherlands, Spain and the U.S. National Capital
Region.
