Raytheon Marking 60 Years of Missile Systems in Tucson, New Projects in Wings

Raytheon’s missile systems business unit is marking its 60th year of having a presence in Tucson, Ariz. causing engineers to look to both the past and to the future.

According to KVOA-TV, engineers are working on an advanced visualization system that allows viewing of the company’s products and facilities in stereoscopic 3D.

“They can sketch things out on a napkin and we can draw it really fast here, get a 3D geometric representation, start looking at it and saying nope, I don’t like this,” said Bill Patterson, program chief architect. “And we go back and change it on the fly, real time.”

Mike Booen, vice president of Raytheon’s advanced security and directed energy systems product line, said the company is starting to use lasers for the Phalanx close in weapon system.
