RTX has been involved in spaceflight since the global community first set its eyes on the final frontier. From our guidance technology on Apollo 11, and our technology that beamed back Neil Armstrong’s famous transmission, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”, we consistently push the boundaries of what’s possible.

A technology transfer model that brings US space technology to the UK, means we can leverage that expertise and investment while developing bespoke UK space solutions. As we continue to grow within this UK domain, we now offer considerable expertise in Space Situational Awareness (SSA), Space Domain Awareness (SDA) and Space Surveillance & Tracking (SST) influencing and implementing Space Law, Policy, Risk Management, Orbital Analytics, and Operations.


What we do

  • Research and Development
  • A high technology space grade manufacturing capability in Scotland.
  • Versatile programme management with experience in complex, large-scale space sensor and mission management solutions
  • Space situational awareness - with a vision of a sustainable use of outer space.

"Raytheon UK’s graduate scheme offered me an invaluable experience across two years, with five rotations in my home function and two years of personal development training alongside this. It was exactly what I needed after university and has been one of the best opportunities I could have been given.”
