Raytheon has begun efforts to help the Department of Defense build and deploy hypersonic vehicles and related platforms to counter the potential threat posed by hypersonic systems from Russia and China.

The company said it is working on air-breathing hypersonic systems with scramjet technology-based engines as well as on tactical boost glide system under a $63M contract the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency awarded in March.

Raytheon has initiated facility expansion efforts in Tucson, Ariz., and made investments in design production facilities to help advance its development work on hypersonic systems.

“In order to develop these highly advanced systems, you need the appropriate infrastructure in place and the technical talent to solve the most challenging problems,“ said Thomas Bussing, vice president of advanced missile systems at Raytheon.
