Raytheon and Boeing to work together for Saudi Air Force
"Raytheon intends to build on our long and proven history in the successful development and global deployment of command and control systems by providing the best C5I solution to our Royal Saudi Air Force customer," said Bob Delorge, vice president, Raytheon C4I Systems.
"Boeing has enjoyed a partnership with Saudi Arabia for nearly 70 years, so working with Raytheon to modernize the RSAF's command and control capability is important to us," said Paul Geery, vice president, Boeing C3 solutions.
Raytheon would provide a specific and tailored C5I systems approach based on its Command View Mission Solutions suite of integrated and interoperable command and control capabilities.
As the provider of the current RSAF command and control system, including the recent RSAF Air Operations Center, as well as the KSA MOD C4I System, Al Diriyah, Raytheon is uniquely positioned to provide the most comprehensive C5I solution to the Kingdom.
Raytheon Command View Mission Solutions, fielded and operational in locations around the world, extend mission effectiveness from strategic operations centers to the tactical edge of the operational environment.
The program pursuit will be led by ThalesRaytheonSystems, a joint venture between Raytheon and Thales, and Raytheon Atheeb Systems Limited (RASL), the Raytheon and Atheeb Group joint venture in Saudi Arabia. RASL solidifies the longstanding partnership between Raytheon and Atheeb, and demonstrates Raytheon's commitment to place significant business into the Kingdom. ■
