What can the military teach companies about cybersecurity?

Software strengthens an already formidable missile

With Raytheon’s multi-mission Standard Missile-6, the U.S. Navy is cost-effectively strengthening its surface fleet and making the world a safer place. (Partner Content)

3-D printing: A training aid for astronauts

The astronauts of Apollo 13 had a life-threatening problem to solve. They had to move from the command module to the lunar module, and their carbon dioxide scrubbers—little filters that make the air breathable – weren't fitting quite right. The circular scrubbers needed to fit in a square space.

View from the cockpit: Former fighter pilots explain air dominance

Time was running out for Cesar “Rico” Rodriguez and the rest of the NATO fighter pilots. They’d pulled off a surprise strike on a Serbian surface-to-air missile site, but the attack was dragging on—and the enemy was about to hit back.

Flying a telescope

NASA calls it "the premier observatory of the next decade." The James Webb Space Telescope, scheduled to launch in 2018, will provide new insight into some of the biggest secrets of the universe. Operated by ground controls from Raytheon, the telescope will peer at the first stars and galaxies in the universe, capturing infrared light that has been traveling for billions of years.

The soldier with 100 eyes

The Pentagon has a vision: to create the omniscient foot soldier. Future fighters will connect to squad mates, support personnel and robots that can fly around corners or crawl through debris to spot hidden threats. That vision is becoming real at Raytheon.

Into the eye of the storm

It’s small, it’s quick and it came from the desert, so they called it Coyote. Only this Coyote can fly. For an hour. In a hurricane. Coyote is a remote-controlled airplane that steps in when the job is too risky for manned aircraft.

Six cybersecurity questions every CEO should ask

It wasn’t long ago that businesses still saw cybersecurity as a problem for information technology people to handle. But a wave of aggressive, sophisticated commercial cyberattacks has changed that way of thinking, and CEOs now know it’s their responsibility to ensure their companies are meeting that challenge.

Supercharged radar promises unmatched protection

Far over the horizon—safe, the enemy commander believes, from his adversary's defenses—an eight-wheeled mobile launcher fires a ballistic missile skyward on a mission of destruction. Suddenly, as the missile nears its target, a wave of radar energy washes over the descending weapon. The launcher crew doesn’t know it, but Raytheon’s powerful new Patriot radar has locked in on the missile and is about to thwart the attack.

With learning robots and emotional computers, AI becomes real

The robotic cockroach was called Zeus, and it came into the world knowing only two things. First, it hated light. Second, it could move its body—though it didn't know how, or what parts it had. Within five minutes, Zeus had learned to walk.
