Raytheon was founded in the year 1922. The company has been operational for almost 97 years now. The founders of the company were Charles G Smith, Vannevar Bush and Laurence K Marshall. The former name of the company was the American Appliance Company. The company started its operations by focusing mainly on refrigeration technology, but slowly moved its aim towards electronics. The first product of the company was a radio-receiver power supply. This power supply made it possible for the alternating current of the household to be converted to direct current, and thus genuinely eliminating the need for any kind of batteries. This gadget was known as Raytheon.
In the year 1925, the company changed its name to Raytheon and therefore marketed the product with the same name as well, and thus achieved significant commercial success. In WWII, the company had received a contract from the USA government in order to build a device that will significantly improve the radar capability for detecting enemy aircraft. Then in the year 1947, the company had made the first microwave oven as well. Later in the year 1961, the company had amalgamated with AC Cosser, which was a British Electronics Company. In the year 1980, the company had taken over Beech Aircraft Corporation, which was a manufacturer of the general type of aircraft. During the 1990s, the company expanded in the defence field by performing various types of acquisitions. In the year 2007, the company had acquired Sarcos and thus expanded into robotics production and research. As of the year 2010, the company had also acquired Applied Signal Technolgy for about $490 million. In 2014, the company had beaten Lockheed Martin in obtaining the contract to build an advanced long-range radar system for $1 billion. The headquarters of the company is based in 870 Winter Street. The name of the place is Waltham, while the name of the state is Massachusetts, USA. The pin code of the area is 02451-1449.
