Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon“˜s intelligence, information and services business segment, has said the company will continue to collaborate with the U.S. Air Force to further develop a ground control system for GPS satellites, Reuters reported Tuesday.
“We feel good about the progress we’ve made,” he told Reuters reporter Andrea Shalal at the Farnborough International Airshow.
“We’ve overcome a lot of the challenges, but there are still some in front of us,” added Wajsgras, an inductee into Executive Mosaic's Wash100 for 2016.
Raytheon completed in June a design review and qualification test for the GPS Operational Control System, Shalal reports.
The service branch will subject the GPS OCX platform to a mandatory review through October after Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James announced on June 30 that the system exceeded congressional cost thresholds, according to the report.
