Raytheon Wires $1 Million to Whistleblower Over Fake GPS Test Results for Air Force

  • He sued, saying company gave US Air Force the fake results
  • Contractor decided not to take adverse ruling to Supreme Court

A whistleblower said Raytheon Technologies Corp. has paid him $1 million after he was punished for revealing that he was instructed to submit false test results to the US Air Force on the company’s troubled ground system for GPS satellites.

Former Raytheon engineer Bruce Casias said in an email that he received the million-dollar wire payment on Thursday. That was after the defense contractor let a mid-October deadline pass to mount a Supreme Court challenge to a 3-0 ruling by the 10th US Circuit Court of Appeals upholding a jury award in his favor.
