Roy Azevedo, president of Raytheon Technologies' intelligence and space business and a 2020 Wash100 Award winner, said he believes the business has the capabilities to support the development of the U.S. Air Force's Advanced Battle Management System, Breaking Defense reported Monday.
“When you think about what Intelligence & Space brings to the table, we've got sensing. Clearly, we've got communications “” secure communications. And we've got network development that we do across the business,“ Azevedo told the publication in an interview. “Fundamentally, at the end of the day, ABMS is an architecture that ties all of these nodes together, to get the right information to the right people. And so, that's very applicable to many segments of this business.“
Raytheon Technologies was one of the companies that secured a spot on the potential $950M ABMS contract to develop systems across ground, air, maritime, space, electromagnetic spectrum and cyber domains in support of the Joint All-Domain Command and Control program.
Azevedo said Raytheon Intelligence and Space is focused on helping military and civilian agency customers define architectures for linking software and hardware in a system.
“What we've mostly been doing is a lot of modeling and simulation analysis to bring to our customers to provide them options and courses of action on the different architectures, without being particular for Raytheon solutions,“ he said. “We're positioning ourselves where we're going to be agnostic in terms of material solutions, and talk about what the impacts are, what the benefits are, of the architecture."
