Raytheon has developed considerable experience in naval systems through its role in major programmes such as DD(X), LPD 17, CVN 21, the Australian Air Warfare Destroyer, and submarines. One of the keys to successfully developing cost effective system-of-systems solutions has been alliances with industry and the customer.
