Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services (RIIS or IIS) is a business unit of Raytheon Company headquartered in Dulles, Virginia.[1] IIS specializes in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; advanced cybersecurity solutions; weather and environmental solutions, and information-based solutions for homeland security. The company also provides training, logistics, engineering, product support, and operational support services and solutions for the mission support, homeland security, space, civil aviation, counter-proliferation and counter-terrorism markets.[2] IIS employs approximately 17,000 people at 551 sites in 100+ countries worldwide. In 2016, the company recorded $6.19 billion in sales.[3] Dave Wajsgras is the President of IIS.[4]


In 1995, Raytheon Company acquired E-Systems, Inc.,[5] a Texas-based company that designed, developed, produced and serviced high technology systems including surveillance, verification, and aircraft ground-land navigation equipment. The company also developed electronics programs and systems for business, industrial, and non-defense government programs and agencies.[6] E-Systems was renamed Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems.

In 2013, Raytheon Company announced the consolidation of its six internal business units to four.[7] Intelligence and Information Systems was combined with Raytheon Technical Services Company and renamed Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services.

Technologies and capabilities[edit]


Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services is organized into six business units, known internally as Mission Areas:
