OTTAWA, May 15, 2014 /CNW/ - Raytheon Canada Limited (RCL), a subsidiary of 
Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), has been awarded a five year contract by Public 
Works and Government Services Canada for operations and maintenance of the 
North Warning System (NWS). The contract also includes two options totaling an 
additional five years. 
Raytheon Canada Limited is contracted to provide operations and maintenance 
for the NWS and assume full care, custody and control of the NWS and its 
components. This includes forty-seven radar sites, five logistics support 
sites, a monitoring and control centre and a radar depot. RCL will be 
maintaining the sites to ensure continuous radar surveillance over northern 
Canada in support of the defence of North American and Canadian sovereignty. 
Raytheon Canada Limited partnered with Canadian Base Operations, Inc., in 
bidding for the contract. 
"Providing the best solution at the best value, as well as our Inuit Benefit 
offering were key discriminators in our win," said Pierre LeBlanc, NWS program 
manager Raytheon Canada Limited. "RCL brings training as a core competency to 
develop a high technology work force in the north." 
Raytheon Canada Limited is committed to not only achieve the contractual Inuit 
Benefits, but has set goals beyond mandatory requirements. Raytheon has 
previous experience in the Arctic and Antarctic environment and is dedicated 
to supporting this important NWS endeavour.
