Raytheon BBN Technologies Awarded Defense Funding to Advance Optical Communications and Imaging — Press Release

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 21, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Raytheon BBN Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), has been awarded $2.1 million in funding by DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) for two projects under the Information in a Photon, or InPho, program.

The goal of the two projects is to develop new theory and experimental techniques that enable optical communications and imaging systems to operate at their ultimate limits of information encoding efficiency as permitted by the laws of quantum physics.

The first project, PIECOMM (Photon Information Efficient Communications), aims to create techniques that increase the current limits of optical communications technology while approaching the ultimate limits of photon information efficiency. Achieving this goal will significantly increase power management, speed and reach on free space optical communication links, including far-field links used in deep space.

“Today, optical communications are far from ultimate performance and reaching the furthest limits of light’s information carrying capacity,” said Saikat Guha, Raytheon BBN Technologies scientist. “We are developing techniques that greatly improve the performance of current optical communications and approach the quantum limits of light’s information carrying capacity.”

Raytheon BBN Technologies will generate and demonstrate experimental solutions, such as multiple-spatial-mode design and adaptive joint-detection receivers that attain communications at 10-bits per photon and 5-bits/sec/Hz while simultaneously encoding information in space and time. This work will be done in close collaboration with leading researchers in optical communications, quantum optics and information theory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The second project, FINESSE (Fundamental Information Capacity of Electromagnetism with Squeezing and Spatial Entanglement), aims to determine the theoretical performance limits for imaging technology as determined by the laws of quantum physics. In collaboration with the University of Virginia, Raytheon BBN Technologies will conduct a theoretical and experimental program of study investigating newly engineered quantum states of light to perform imaging with performance superior to conventional techniques. The program will result in a fundamentally new technology for imaging in the near and the far field.

“Conventional imaging techniques use classical light pulses from lasers and detect the resulting reflection from a target or scene,” said Jonathan Habif, Raytheon BBN Technologies senior scientist. “We have set out to define new quantum states of light and subsequent detection methods from which we can obtain far more image information from a lot less light.”

Raytheon BBN Technologies will develop new sources of quantum-entangled light and state-of-the-art optical sensor technologies to demonstrate improvement in the information efficiency of light used for imaging.

Raytheon Company, with 2009 sales of $25 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 88 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as a broad range of mission support services. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 75,000 people worldwide.

Raytheon BBN Technologies Awarded $81 Million to Establish Nation’s Largest Network Science Research Center — Press Release

Raytheon BBN Technologies Awarded $81 Million to Establish Nation’s Largest Network Science Research Center

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 15, 2009 /PRNewswire/ — Raytheon BBN Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) , has been awarded an $81 million contract by the Army Research Laboratory to create a collaborative technology alliance in network science.

Under the five-year contract, Raytheon BBN Technologies will pursue fundamental research in network science to identify the commonalities that apply to diverse kinds of networks. Called the ARL Network Science Collaborative Technology Alliance, the consortium will examine communication, information, and social and cognitive networks and will include leading researchers from all of these disciplines.

Raytheon BBN Technologies will lead the technology consortium, which will include more than 30 university and industrial labs, from an Interdisciplinary Research Center (IRC) to be established at the Raytheon BBN Technologies headquarters in Cambridge, Mass. Many researchers from across the consortium will use the facility as their base, while other members will continue to work from their home campuses.

In addition to conducting pure research in network science, the IRC will be responsible for transitioning new technologies to the Department of Defense.

“This contract award reinforces our leadership in networking research,” said Tad Elmer, president, Raytheon BBN Technologies. “Our team is determined to develop the underlying technologies that will make networks more flexible, adaptable and secure.”

Raytheon BBN Technologies is a research and development organization with expertise spanning information security, speech and language processing, networking, distributed systems, and sensing and control systems. For more information, visit www.bbn.com.

Raytheon Company, with 2008 sales of $23.2 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 87 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as a broad range of mission support services. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 73,000 people worldwide.

Recent Raytheon Acquistion BBN Awarded Army Contract

In a continuing program to improve the defenses of vehicles in Iraq and Afghanistan the U.S. Army awarded BBN Technologies a contract for another thousand Boomerang Shooter Detection Systems. The contract for these systems and their mounting kits is worth about twenty-two million dollars. The system has already been installed on vehicles and detects incoming fire and tries to determine the location of the enemy.

BBN Technologies was recently acquired by Raytheon. This is a major M&A event and one of several that occurred recently. As with the other ones it may indicate that there will be significant consolidation of the defense industry as the larger companies move to shore up revenue and earnings through M&A.
