We’re defeating tomorrow’s threats 

As domains converge and connect, new threats and opportunities emerge. By giving service members every advantage for operational success, RTX is creating a safer world. It is this mission that drives our innovation in defense technology. 

A relentless pursuit of progress drives us forward every day – because the progress we make matters. And it matters because what we deliver protects and connects our world.

Key facts

We draw on decades of investment in technology to protect our world. Here are just a few examples.

How can you own the sky before leaving the ground? 

Annabel Flores, a strategic business unit leader at Raytheon, discusses the importance of taking control of the skies at the first instance of a strategic threat. RTX’s high-energy laser systems are helping defeat drone swarm threats without leaving the ground. Our airborne sensors give pilots and unmanned aircraft the advantage at penetrating enemy airspaces and accomplishing their missions.


All about the F-35

It’s the world’s most advanced fighter jet, and RTX produces much of the technology that helps it accomplish its many missions – including our new, smart F135 engine core upgrade.
