Raytheon Missile Systems

raytheon's missile facility is
located in tuscon, ariz.

nologies will provide them. Ernzen
says its customers view Raytheon as
the leader in the technology space,
and as a result the company has the
credibility to allay their reservations.
She also notes that the company has a
strong reputation for allowing its employees to help drive solutions, which
goes a long way to providing it with
that credibility. "One of the things
that we also pride ourselves on is that
we really leverage our employees to
give us ideas," she says.

Thinking Ahead
The futuristic technology Raytheon is
utilizing in its manufacturing and engineering processes today is only the
beginning, and the company continues to look for ways to refine that technology. Erickson says the next step for
Raytheon as part of Industry 4.0 is to

create a fully digital manufacturing
environment where the Internet of
Things connects the digital portion
of the process with the physical work
together in a more seamless way. "We
are now able to feed back into design
activities what some of our manufacturing outcomes are, so that whole
convergence in a very timely way is
very exciting," Erickson says.
One of the most recent examples
of Raytheon refining its technology is
the refresh the company completed
on its CAVE in Tucson. Loomis says
the company worked closely with its
engineers to determine what they
wanted to see in the next iteration
of the environment, upgrading from
a four-wall system to an eight-wall
system for greater immersion. "It's a
one-of-a-kind system," Loomis says.
Ernzen says much of the technology

being employed by Raytheon is commercially available, so the company is
working closely with leading technology companies to get a handle on the
latest advances in areas such as wearable technology and the Internet of
Things to see how they can be applied
to its processes. She says the company has experimented with technology
like Google Glass, but some of those
technologies still need to mature to
a degree before Raytheon can utilize
them to their full potential.
Loomis says that by leveraging
some of the latest technological advancements in industries including
movie-making and video games, Raytheon is putting itself in a strong position to remain at the forefront of
technology for a long time to come.
"It's very exciting times for Raytheon," she says. mt
