General Dynamics’ New High-Speed, CyberDefense Capable TACLANE-10G Encryptor Now NSA Certified April 6, 2015 FAIRFAX, VA -- General Dynamics Mission Systems' new TACLANEŽ-10G (KG-175X) inline network encryptor is now certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to secure information at the Top Secret level and below. The NSA certification authorizes U.S. government organizations to order the new 10G encryptor. "The NSA certification of TACLANE-10G is another step forward for General Dynamics Mission Systems' cyber defense capabilities. General Dynamics keeps our customers connected while ensuring their security and advancing their operations. Securing sensitive and critical information is yet another example of how we support our customers," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems. The TACLANE-10G is the newest member of General Dynamics' cyber defense product family and can encrypt the equivalent of a high-definition feature film in moments, speeding it securely though a network with unprecedented fidelity at the Top Secret level and below. The encryptor also provides the ability to send and receive multiple U.S. and coalition data files simultaneously without operator intervention, reducing the number of encryptors needed to perform similar functions. "For more than 50 years, the U.S. government has trusted General Dynamics to secure government networks ensuring that sensitive and classified information remains out of the reach of unauthorized individuals," said Nadia Short, vice president and general manager of the Cyber Systems line of business for General Dynamics Mission Systems. "The NSA certification recognizes and validates the TACLANE-10G's ability to secure data through government networks worldwide." General Dynamics' Customer Investment Protection Program encourages organizations protecting critical networks and infrastructure to maximize their investment and maintain their security posture by using General Dynamics' trade-in programs. A TACLANE-10G trade-in program is available through December 31, 2015, allowing users of the current HAIPE in-line encryptor to take advantage of the new bandwidth efficiency and cyber security features provided by the 10G.

U.S. Army Taps IBM Hybrid Cloud for One of Federal Government’s Biggest Logistics Systems April 8, 2015 ARMONK, NY -- IBM today announced that the U.S. Army is using IBM Hybrid Cloud to power one of the biggest logistics systems in the U.S. federal government. The new hybrid cloud system is designed to connect the IBM Cloud to the Army's onpremise environment to enable broad use of data analytics for sharper insights and result in improved performance, enterprise scale, better security, and greater reliability – all IBM hallmarks. The Logistics Support Activity – known as LOGSA – provides on-time integrated logistics support of Army operations worldwide that impacts every soldier, every day. Since migrating to an on premise hybrid cloud model with IBM in 2014, LOGSA processes 40 million unique data transactions every day – more than the New York Stock Exchange. Achieving cost savings of 50 percent with this new model, the Army can now focus on bringing in new analytics services such as condition-based maintenance and data mining that can benefit all Army organizations. LOGSA will harness data and analytics via cloud computing to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of logistical coordination. Doing so requires the ability to easily connect the cloud to existing IT systems. LOGSA is home of the Logistics Information Warehouse (LIW), the Army’s official storehouse for collecting, storing, organizing and delivering logistics data. It provides critical logistics information capabilities through analytics tools and business intelligence solutions to acquire, manage, equip and sustain the materiel needs of the U.S. Army. LIW provides services to more than 65,000 users and 150 direct trading partners around the world. As the Army's authoritative source for logistics data, LOGSA provides logistics intelligence, life cycle support, technical advice, and assistance to the current and future force; integrates logistics information (force structure, readiness, and other logistics data) for worldwide equipment readiness and distribution analysis; and offers asset visibility for timely and proactive decision making. As the logistics units in the Army equip, sustain, and maintain the force, IBM provides reliability, timeliness, and cost savings. With the new cloud delivery model, Army logistics personnel have the ability to manage the movement of equipment with up to date, accurate information.

BAE Systems Receives $53 Million U.S. Navy Contract for Vertical Launching System Canisters April 13, 2015 BAE Systems has received a $52.9 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy to provide additional canisters for the Mk 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS). The VLS canisters are used to ship, store, and launch various types of missiles from Navy ships. “We have a long history with the VLS canister program,” said Chris Hughes, vice president and general manager of Weapon Systems at BAE Systems. “This contract reflects the trust the Navy has in us for this highly effective system.” BAE Systems has more than 30 years of experience in the development, production, and support of the VLS system for naval forces throughout the world. The canister contract — originally awarded during a June 2013 competition — is a five-year, base plus options contract covering fiscal years 2013 through 2017 to meet canister requirements for the Navy. Additional option awards are expected in fiscal years 2016 and 2017. The canisters are positioned within the Mk 41 VLS, which is located below a ship’s armored deck for maximum protection. The system easily accommodates the latest weapon types to meet new mission requirements. VLS canisters serve as missile shipping and storage containers, and, once employed on the ship, have many additional functions. The canisters contain rocket motor exhaust, serve as a launch rail to support flyout during missile firings, and provide identification and firing support to multiple missile types, including Tomahawks, Standard Missile-3, Standard Missile-6, and SeaSparrow. Work on this contract modification will continue through June 2017, with the full contract continuing through June 2019. Work will be performed at BAE Systems’ facilities in Aberdeen, South Dakota (87 percent), and Minneapolis, Minnesota (13 percent).

Exelis Delivers Encryptors for GPS OX April 15, 2015 ROCHESTER, NY – Exelis delivered six enhanced ground encryptors, which will improve information security for the Global Positioning System’s NextGeneration Operational Control System (GPS OCX), to Raytheon Company. GPS OCX is part of the U.S. Air Force’s GPS modernization program. The Air Force will use the encryptors, which are about the size of a stereo amplifier, to protect information sent between OCX and navigation payloads on board legacy and next-generation GPS satellites. The encryptors play a central role in the management of cryptographic keys used throughout the ground system. Exelis shipped eight baseline encryptors in 2013 to Raytheon. Exelis support to GPS modernization is part of the company’s overall focus on strategic growth in intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and analytics. “The enhanced encryptors support M-code, the modernized military signal, which is an integral part of the GPS modernization program and important for the Department of Defense because it provides a separate signal with high jam-and spoof-resistance strictly for military use versus civilian,” said Joe Rambala, Exelis vice president and general manager of positioning, navigation and timing. “Some of today’s GPS satellites can broadcast M-code signals, but unlike GPS OCX, the current control segment cannot bring M-code online. The encryptors will be enablers for Mcode processing to improve the overall GPS program and its security.” Once integrated into the OCX system, the encryptors will help ensure that the next generation of GPS satellites will be ready for launch, and will provide advanced capabilities and security to both military and civilian users. In addition to encryptors, Exelis is building high-precision receivers for use in OCX ground monitoring stations and satellite signal simulators for testing purposes. Exelis also provides critical elements of software in the OCX navigation processing subsystem that will enable controllers to better understand the exact position of GPS satellites. The navigation subsystem also helps ensure accurate navigation information is securely broadcast to users. As part of the overall GPS modernization effort, Exelis is also on contract with Lockheed Martin to provide payloads for GPS III satellites. Exelis is a major space technology provider, supporting both the satellite and ground portions of the GPS modernization program. For nearly 40 years, Exelis payloads or payload components have been on board every GPS satellite and have accumulated more than 700 years of on-orbit life without a single mission-related failure due to Exelis equipment.

Northrop Grumman Enables Assured Warfighter Communications by Demonstrating Affordable PTW Space Processor April 15, 2015 REDONDO BEACH, CA -- Northrop Grumman has successfully demonstrated a space-design protected tactical waveform (PTW) processor that enhances user data rates up to a factor of 20, improves spectral efficiency up to a factor of 4 and provides bandwidth-ondemand to significantly improve warfighter communications in contested tactical environments. The testing was completed as part of the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center's MILSATCOM Design for Affordability Risk Reduction effort with MIT/Lincoln Labs. The processor successfully communicated using the Air Force-developed protected tactical waveform, which builds upon the proven protection features of the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) program's extended data rate waveform known as XDR. Northrop Grumman confirmed the demonstration platform consists of flight-representative technology readiness level six (TRL-6) hardware, firmware and software that can be incorporated into a near-term flight program and provide assured communication and performance to the warfighter. "While PTW provides substantial new capabilities for the warfighter, a waveform alone does not provide protection," said Tim Frei, vice president, communication systems, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "The real value of PTW is when it is integrated into an architecture with comprehensive protection including space-based processing, non-commercial frequency bands, crosslinks and other key protection features in the antenna and radio frequency processing chains. "Northrop Grumman has maximized the value of this contract to the government by treating it not simply as a concept demonstration, but rather as true risk reduction and prototype development consistent with our standard development process for flight units," added Frei. "Each dollar spent developing the demonstration platform for this effort has directly reduced the future cost of an eventual flight unit."

X-47B Unmanned Aircraft Demonstrates the First Autonomous Aerial Refueling April 22, 2015 PATUXENT RIVER, MD -- Northrop Grumman Corporation and the U.S. Navy successfully demonstrated fully autonomous aerial refueling (AAR) with the X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System Demonstration (UCAS-D) aircraft today, marking the first time in history that an unmanned aircraft has refueled in-flight. This is another historic aviation milestone for the X47B, which in 2013 became the first unmanned aircraft to autonomously launch from and recover aboard an aircraft carrier. In combination, these landmark demonstrations constitute a major step forward in autonomy that has application in both manned and unmanned aircraft. Autonomous launch, recovery and refueling have the potential for reducing operational costs in the future. "AAR testing with the X-47B helps solidify the concept that future unmanned aircraft can perform standard missions like aerial refueling and operate seamlessly with manned aircraft as part of the Carrier Air Wing," said Capt. Beau Duarte, the Navy's Unmanned Carrier Aviation program manager. During the probe and drogue (or "Navy-style") AAR demonstration, the X-47B performed a close formation flight rendezvous with an Omega K-707 tanker. Upon clearance from the tanker crew, the X-47B maneuvered into position behind the K-707 and successfully engaged the drogue. On completion of the refueling, the X-47B autonomously disengaged the drogue and maneuvered away from the tanker before returning to base. "We are very pleased with the outcome of this first round of probe and drogue flights with the X47B," said Pablo Gonzalez, UCAS-D program manager, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "The AAR system and X-47B both performed as expected. While we would certainly benefit from additional probe and drogue flight testing, we have reached a tipping point at which AAR is now feasible."

US Army Saves Millions of Dollars on Helicopter Fuel Costs by Using GE Liquid Fuel Additive April 23, 2015 TREVOSE, PA -- GE has a liquid fuel additive that is saving the U.S. Army millions of dollars in helicopter fuel and maintenance costs. The Army is projecting even greater cost savings if it expands deployment of GE’s +100 fuel additive to all Army aircraft. As part of long-term feasibility studies of the additive on the U.S. Army’s helicopters based at Fort Rucker, Alabama, all models using +100 have shown significant cost savings. For example, the additive has helped the Army achieve savings of nearly $150 per flight hour for the base’s Chinook helicopters, while its Black Hawk helicopters reported savings of about $40 per flight hour. Fort Rucker is home to the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence. GE’s +100 fuel additive paid for itself in the first year of operation. Since the Army began its long-term evaluation of the fuel additive in 2003, Fort Rucker has saved an estimated $5.4 million per year on maintenance cost alone with a combined net savings of $69 million over 10 years. “We are excited by the potential of our +100 fuel additive and the significant operational and maintenance cost savings that have been achieved by the U.S. Army for their global fleet of helicopters at Fort Rucker,” said Kevin Cassidy, chemical and monitoring solutions general manager—water and process technologies for GE Power & Water. “It is our belief, and the belief of the Fort Rucker team, that equal or greater benefits can be realized if +100 is utilized across the Army’s entire fleet of helicopters, other aircraft and any turbine-powered equipment to reduce the department’s costs.” GE’s liquid fuel additive is called +100 for its ability to offer operators an additional 100 degrees Fahrenheit of thermal stability to their fuel. It is this enhanced thermal stability that prevents engine coking in aircraft and results in a cleaner, more efficient burn as well as lower operating costs and dramatic life cycle cost savings. In addition, the use of +100 has been proven to reduce carbon soot on the skin or sides of the helicopter due to cleaner engine exhaust. The +100 can technically be used in all turbine-powered equipment, including tanks, since they run hot and also have coking issues. In addition, the +100 also can be used in the commercial sector, specifically in helicopters and airlines.

Most Advanced GPS Satellite Comes Together: First Lockheed Martin-Built GPS III Ready for System-Level Testing May 4, 2015 DENVER -- Using a 10-ton crane, Lockheed Martin engineers and technicians gently lowered the system module of the U.S. Air Force’s first next generation GPS III satellite into place over its propulsion core, successfully integrating the two into one space vehicle. GPS III space vehicle one (SV 01) is the first of a new, advanced GPS satellite design block for the Air Force. GPS III will deliver three times better accuracy, provide up to eight times improved anti-jamming capabilities and extend spacecraft life to 15 years, 25 percent longer than the satellites launching today. GPS III’s new L1C civil signal also will make it the first GPS satellite interoperable with other international global navigation satellite systems. The systems integration event brought together several major fully functional satellite components. The system module includes the navigation payload, which performs the primary positioning, navigation and timing mission. The functional bus contains sophisticated electronics that manage all satellite operations. The propulsion core allows the satellite to maneuver for operations on orbit. “The final integration of the first GPS III satellite is a major milestone for the GPS III program,” said Mark Stewart, vice president of Lockheed Martin’s Navigation Systems mission area. “This summer, SV 01 will begin Thermal Vacuum testing, where it will be subjected to simulated harsh space environments. Successful completion of this testing is critical as it will help validate our design and manufacturing processes for all follow-on GPS III satellites.” Lockheed Martin is currently under contract to build eight GPS III satellites at its GPS III Processing Facility near Denver, a factory specifically designed to streamline satellite production. The GPS III team is led by the Global Positioning Systems Directorate at the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center. Air Force Space Command’s 2nd Space Operations Squadron (2SOPS), based at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, manages and operates the GPS constellation for both civil and military users.

New Integrated Night Vision and Thermal Targeting Solution Bolsters Mission Effectiveness of U.S. Army Soldiers May 4, 2015 The U.S. Army selects BAE Systems to provide integrated enhanced night vision and targeting solution. The U.S. Army has awarded BAE Systems a five-year contract worth up to $434 million for the company’s integrated night vision and thermal targeting solution, which improves the speed and accuracy of targeting by dismounted soldiers. The new offering helps troops to rapidly and covertly acquire targets in all weather and lighting conditions. “Supplying the U.S. Army with this new rapid target acquisition technology builds on our heritage as a long-time provider of thermal weapon sights and precision targeting solutions,” said Terry Crimmins, vice president and general manager of Survivability and Targeting Solutions at BAE Systems. “The ability to conduct surveillance in any light or weather condition increases mission safety and effectiveness.” Currently, U.S. troops use two different devices — night vision goggles for situational awareness and a weapon-mounted thermal sight for targeting. These existing tools require a soldier to identify and acquire the target through the goggle system and then raise the weapon sight into his field of view to engage. On today’s battlefield, this slower approach, which is often further hampered by heavy smoke or bad weather, compromises soldiers’ safety and can reduce mission effectiveness. By integrating night vision and thermal targeting capabilities into one sight displayed on the soldiers’ goggles, BAE Systems’ new solution allows troops to more easily acquire targets and engage faster. With an initial award of $35 million, the U.S. Army selected the BAE Systems team to meet its Enhanced Night Vision Goggle III and Family of Weapon Sight-Individual (ENVG III/FWS-I) program goals of providing a smaller, lighter, tightly integrated, and cost-effective night vision and targeting solution. The fully integrated ENVG III/FWS-I solution is being developed and manufactured at the company’s recently completed 47,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Hudson, New Hampshire.

Global Hawk Earns Unprecedented Third Consecutive Sustainment Award May 4, 2015 SAN DIEGO, CA -- For an unprecedented third year in a row, the U.S. Air Force RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft program was officially awarded the Dr. James G. Roche Sustainment Excellence Award for most improved performance in aircraft maintenance and logistics readiness during a ceremony April 28 at the Pentagon. Northrop Grumman Corporation is the prime contractor for the high-flying fleet of Global Hawks. Air Force officials annually determine the award winner by calculating improvements from a predetermined set of metrics that impact performance. The Global Hawk demonstrated the most significant improvement in performance and sustainment based on factors like high total aircraft availability, mission capability and low non-mission capability rates for maintenance and supply. "Winning the Roche award for the third year in a row is an incredible achievement for the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. Northrop Grumman is proud to partner with the Air Force in providing unmatched logistical and maintenance support," said Mick Jaggers, Global Hawk Unmanned Aircraft System program director, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "The Roche award is significant because it focuses solely on the numbers. When it comes to sustainment, the Global Hawk has consistently ranked the best in the Air Force inventory." The Sustainment Excellence Award is granted by Headquarters U.S. Air Force Logistics, Installations and Mission Support. It is named for Dr. James G. Roche, the 20th Secretary of the Air Force. He served in the Air Force's top position from 2001 to 2005. Global Hawk has flown 150,000 total flight hours supporting diverse global missions. Carrying a variety of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sensor payloads, Global Hawk supports antiterrorism, antipiracy, humanitarian assistance, disaster relief, airborne communications and information-sharing missions. Northrop Grumman has been a trusted leader in global sustainment, training and modernization for over 80 years.

Exelis and FAA-Designated Test Sites to Research the Safe Integration of Unmanned Aircraft Into the National Airspace System May 5, 2015 HERNDON, VA -- Exelis has signed agreements with four Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-designated unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) Test Sites for airspace situational awareness and research. The research will focus on using the Exelis Symphony® RangeVue™ sense-and-avoid tool towards safe integration of unmanned aircraft into the national airspace system. Under the terms of the agreements, the Test Sites will gain valuable real-time and historical situational awareness of the range airspace via Symphony RangeVue, while Exelis gains critical product feedback through operational usage. The participating Test Sites are the Pan-Pacific UAS Test Range at University of Alaska Fairbanks, Alaska; the Northern Plains UAS Test Site at University of North Dakota, N.D.; the Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research Alliance at Griffiss International Airport, N.Y; and the Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Va. “The partnerships with these Test Sites are win-win arrangements,” said Ed Sayadian, vice president of Civil & Aerospace Systems for Exelis. “The Test Sites receive air traffic controlquality surveillance data, increasing safety and enabling beyond-line-of-site operations, while Exelis gains critical product feedback which will be used to shape and validate our service offerings.” Symphony RangeVue enables UAS operators and test range personnel to have access to both real-time and historical aircraft surveillance information via a web-hosted platform, helping to manage mission operations across multiple locations. Symphony RangeVue can be used as command center decision support and post-event analysis tool, or in the field as a sense-andavoid addition to UAS ground control stations. Flexible geo-fencing tools alert operators when a UAS approaches airspace boundaries or other aircraft are in the vicinity. Additionally, Exelis is pursuing research and development opportunities with the Test Sites exploring detect-and-avoid algorithms; non-cooperative target tracking; command and control systems; infrastructure inspection and monitoring; big data analysis for air traffic; and integration of non-FAA surveillance sources. Exelis will leverage capabilities across multiple test sites for a wide range of operational testing and collection of safety data.

Development Completed on Advanced Ground Station for Lockheed Martin-Built Air Force National Security Space Program May 11, 2015 AURORA, CO – Lockheed Martin has crossed the threshold from development to testing on the nextgeneration ground system, called Increment 2, for the Air Force’s Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) after successfully integrating significant software and hardware to the station. Once operational, Increment 2 will increase SBIRS’ overall ability to manage complex, emerging threats while reducing Air Force operations and maintenance costs. The milestone was completed in March at the Mission Control Station (MCS) on Buckley Air Force Base, demonstrating Increment 2’s maturity as it enters certification testing. “Increment 2 is on target to replace the legacy system by 2016 with significant performance improvements,” said David Sheridan, Lockheed Martin vice president and SBIRS program director. “Consolidating operations into a centralized SBIRS ground system will enable warfighters to more efficiently monitor worldwide threats and alert responders for immediate action.” The legacy ground system operates from three different locations to manage the Defense Support Program (DSP), SBIRS Geosynchronous Orbit satellites and Highly Elliptical Orbit hosted sensor payloads. The Increment 2 ground station will consolidate those separate operations into one control station to command the global, persistent infrared surveillance provided by SBIRS. Completing the development of SBIRS Increment 2 follows the successful live commanding of DSP and SBIRS satellites and payloads earlier this year. During a three-day test, the U.S. Air Force’s 460th Operations Group used Increment 2 to individually transmit and receive commands to and from each of the DSP and SBIRS assets on orbit from the MCS. “An effective ground station has to reliably process and quickly deliver data,” said Vinny Sica, Lockheed Martin vice president of Space Ground Solutions. “After the Air Force’s commanding test we know that Increment 2 can effectively communicate with DSP and SBIRS satellites and payloads. The transition to testing brings the new, efficient ground station nearer to certified operation supporting national security.”

Successful Demonstration of Precision Guidance Kit for Artillery Shells to Support Ground Troops May 11, 2015 Rokar Silver Bullet precision guidance kit can transform an artillery shell into a highly accurate munition. BAE Systems’ live fire test demonstrated that its Rokar Silver Bullet precision guidance kit can transform a standard 155mm artillery shell into a highly accurate munition. The system’s advanced ability to self-correct in flight greatly increases effectiveness while reducing collateral damage, allowing for more precise engagement in urban environments and against protected targets. “The Silver Bullet precision guidance kit provides military commanders with additional operational flexibility, through a higher hit capability and increased mission effectiveness for artillery forces,” said Nir Lavi, general manager of BAE Systems Rokar. “Silver Bullet can significantly enhance the warfighter’s ability to operate on the modern battlefield.” The most recent live fire event, held in February in Israel, was the latest in a series of demonstrations with several customers including a successful firing performed with South Korean defence contractor, Poongsan Corporation. In these tests, more than 150 Silver Bullet precision guidance kits have been tested over several years of development. Conducted in severe conditions over challenging terrains including land and sea, the firing tests highlight the system’s mature design and resulting high reliability. The majority of kits in these demonstrations hit within 10 meters of the target. The Silver Bullet’s in-flight high correction capability reduces the need for an aiming process as its enhanced accuracy greatly increases the ability to hit a target with the first shot fired. Compatible with existing inventories of conventional artillery shells, the GPS-based Silver Bullet can be assembled in the field by the soldiers as a standard artillery fuze to provide highly accurate, self-correcting capability. The system has proven its versatility through successful firings from a number of artillery guns including the M109 and the K9 barrel and has been proven effective on several types of shells including the M795 and the K307. Additional information regarding this non-ITAR system can be found at www.baesystems.com/silverbullet.

Raytheon Delivers First GPS OCX Hardware Shipment to Air Force May 14, 2015 AURORA, CO – Raytheon has delivered the first operational hardware for the Global Positioning System's Next Generation Operational Control System, known as GPS OCX, completing a key milestone in the program. GPS OCX is the ground command and control system that will manage GPS satellites with significantly improved accuracy and precision, while providing unprecedented levels of cyber protection. The May delivery is the first hardware shipment in support of the next-generation GPS ground control stations. The hardware was delivered to Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado, which will ultimately serve as the home for the new GPS OCX Master Control Station. "Delivery and testing of the hardware represents a key milestone for the OCX program, as it supports next year's acceptance of the OCX Launch and Checkout System for the GPS III satellites," said Matt Gilligan, GPS OCX program manager. The hardware delivery supports the new GPS ground system, which will deliver a host of new capabilities. The Launch and Checkout System (LSC) is a subset of the fuller OCX ground system, and establishes the cyber-hardened infrastructure to which additional mission applications will be added. The next step is for the team is to install and audit the equipment, as well as perform information assurance testing. This delivery will also enable certification and testing of hardware ahead of the next milestone in the program -- formal customer acceptance of LCS -- in early 2016. In addition to the first hardware delivery, the team has developed and integrated all of the software for LCS, which provides launch and checkout capability for the initial GPS III launches. "With hardware in place, Raytheon is positioned to complete validation and testing of critical capabilities and cybersecurity protections ahead of the LCS Acceptance milestone," added Gilligan. "LCS was established in part as a significant risk reduction effort for the program. Raytheon is committed to a seamless transition of OCX and the capabilities it will deliver to the U.S. Warfighter and civil and commercial users worldwide." The U.S. warfighter leverages GPS services to support air, land, sea and space missions. Additionally, GPS is used by millions of people around the world to enhance daily life activities such as personal navigation tools. It's also required for industry and businesses and is essential to support safety-of-life assurance for air traffic control systems and emergency responders.

Washington D.C.

Event Visitor

General Information: Getting to D.C. by Airplane: Most people heading into D.C. for business arrive at one of Washington's two major airports: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Dulles International Airport (IAD). Located less than five miles from the White House, the DCA is only a short ride away from downtown D.C. The Dulles International Airport is located about 30 minutes from the city. However, if your business is taking you to the Dulles Corridor in Northern Virginia, flying into Dulles International Airport would be the better option. Ground Transportation: From the Reagan airport to downtown Washington, taxi fares will run between $8 and $17 since the airport is located close to the city. But the taxi ride from the Dulles airport to downtown DC will likely cost more than $50 plus tax, with lesser charges along the Northern Virginia route into the city. Renting a car is another available option at both Dulles and Reagan airports. Public Transportation: If you're heading to downtown D.C. from the Reagan airport, the Metro can get you there in about 15 minutes and will cost about $2 one-way, depending on your stop. Stations are located in terminals B and C. Weather: Although the weather in D.C. is relatively mild compared to the rest of the nation, you should still be mindful of the season when packing your suitcase because the capital region has four distinct seasons.

For those who are intrigued by the secretive world of spies, head over to the International Spy Museum. There you can live out your espionage fantasy by enrolling in spy school, where you can learn how to morph your identity, hone your intuition and observation skills, and take a pathology workshop. The museum invites visitors to explore a realistic forensics lab, create ID cards with fingerprinting, and try out a lie detector test. The International Spy Museum is also equipped with a simulated FBI shooting range and high-speed police chase simulators. McCormick & Schmick's at 16th and K: Once the clock hits 5, head over to McCormick & Schmick's on 16th and K Street to relax after a long business day. The McCormick franchise has locations all across the country, and is best known for serving exquisite seafood. The K Street branch, however, is particularly popular because it is frequented by lawyers, lobbyists, business types, and politicos who work in the surrounding metropolitan area. The Washingtonian Magazine named McCormick & Schmick's the “Best Happy Hour” in town, with specials on draft beers, well spirits, wines, cocktails, and martinis. It’s the perfect place to grab a drink after work and mingle. POV Roof Terrace and Lounge: Those seeking a lively night out on the town can head up to the Point of View Rooftop Lounge and Terrace.

Dining in D.C. Recommendations for a Business Meeting Brasserie Beck: Established in 2007, Brasserie Beck has a reputation for serving quality Belgian cuisine for lunch and dinner. Located in the heart of D.C.'s burgeoning McPherson square, the contemporary European-style brasserie has become a popular place for Washingtonites to meet up both during and after business hours. The beautifully decorated dining room doesn't carry conversations across the room, so it's a great spot for business lunches and private meetings. Restaurant owner and critically acclaimed chef Robert Wiedmaier brings inspiration from his Belgian roots to his dishes. Guest favorites include the moules and frites with a trio of homemade dipping sauces, the Charcuterie Plate, the classic Belgian mainstay of beef carbonnade, and the crispy skate wing. Brasserie Beck also features a raw oyster bar and a fullservice bar that boasts the city's most extensive Belgian beer list outside of Belgium, offering nine draught beers and over 100 bottled beers. 1101 K St. NW, (202) 408-1717 Old Ebbitt Grill: Just steps away from the White House, the Old Ebbitt Grill is a popular dining destination for working professionals to discuss business over traditional American cuisine. The 1856 establishment features a BeauxArts facade and Victorian interior that is reminiscent of Washington saloons at the turn of the century. Its mahogany and velvet booths provide privacy for political insiders, lawyers, business executives, and journalists to meet, negotiate deals, or swap stories. In fact, this historic eatery was a favorite amongst Presidents Grant, Cleveland, Harding, and Roosevelt, and it’s easy to see why. The restaurant offers a wide array of dishes—all of which are made with fresh and seasonal ingredients—and four full-service bars. If you’re a fan of oysters, be sure to check out the restaurant’s famous Oyster Bar in the back of the room. 675 15th St. NW, (202) 347-4800
