Thomas Kennedy, chairman and CEO of Raytheon and a 2019 Wash100 winner, said the company is focused on the development of hypersonics and counter-hypersonics technologies and sees a larger market for the latter.

“We really believe that the counter-hypersonic market is actually larger than the hypersonic market,” Kennedy told analysts during a call Thursday. “Not only does it include the weapons “¦ but it also includes the entire kill chain — communication and sensors.”

He commented on the Department of Department's counter-hypersonics projects and cited the potential benefit of the planned merger with United Technologies Corp. to Raytheon's hypersonics work.

“They will be able to help us, once we close, relative to their technology, especially into high-temperature materials . . . and they also do have some high-end sensors that we don't have,” Kennedy said of UTC.
