EDITOR’S NOTE

When I think of effects, I think of the “boom” often demonstrated by our missile

defense products. But the depth and breadth of Raytheon’s effects technology has a far

greater impact than missiles alone. By leveraging our core technologies and combining

them in new and innovative ways, we are better prepared to meet the challenges of

changing global markets.

This issue highlights some of those innovations in the areas of net-enabled effects like

the Miniature Air-Launched Decoy — the world’s first network-centric weapon system.

We also highlight innovations developed for adjacent markets, including the Autonomic

Tracking and Response System, a knowledge delivery service. Also in this issue, you’ll

read about DC-DC conversion for boosting radar performance, the TRIPOD tool for

predicting molecular film contaminants on missile optics, and the Land-Based Phalanx

Weapon System, a laser area defense system.

No issue is complete without recognizing some of our best and brightest certified

architects as well as highlighting some of Raytheon’s key technology knowledge sharing

symposia — where some of our most innovative ideas come to life.

Enjoy!
