EL SEGUNDO, Calif., July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN)
announced today it has been awarded a $279.4 million cost-plus-incentive-fee
contract by the U.S. Navy to conduct the Technology Development phase of the
Navy's Next Generation Jammer program.

"We believe the Navy's choice validates Raytheon's leadership in advanced
electronic attack systems and technologies," said Rick Yuse, president of
Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business. "Raytheon looks forward to
building on our long-standing relationship with the U.S. Navy as we provide
the warfighter with innovative and reliable Next Generation Jammer solutions
now and for many years to come."

Raytheon leveraged knowledge and experience as a leading tactical weapon
systems integrator to provide an affordable, low-risk, comprehensive NGJ
solution to the U.S. Navy. Raytheon also leveraged its Gallium nitride (GaN)
based AESA technologies to provide warfighters with enhanced electronic attack
capabilities.

"Raytheon provided the U.S. Navy with an innovative and efficient design
capable of jamming current and future threats," said Yuse. "Our technology
approach met the program requirements and leveraged our industry team's
extensive experience in combat-proven, high-reliability agile-beam RF systems
designed for demanding carrier-based aircraft environments."

NGJ will replace the ALQ-99 tactical jamming system currently on the Navy's
EA-18G Growler tactical airborne electronic attack aircraft.

Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business, based in McKinney, Texas, will
lead the Technology Development phase of the NGJ program with collaboration
from Raytheon facilities in El Segundo, Calif.; Forest, Miss.; Dallas, Texas;
Fort Wayne, Ind.; Largo, Fla.; and Andover, Mass.
