Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheonâ€˜s intelligence, information and services business segment, has said the company will continue to collaborate with the U.S. Air Force to further develop aÂ ground control system for GPS satellites, Reuters reported Tuesday.
“We feel good about the progress we’ve made,” he told Reuters reporter Andrea Shalal at the Farnborough International Airshow.
“We’ve overcome a lot of the challenges, but there are still some in front of us,” added Wajsgras, an inductee into Executive Mosaicâ€™s Wash100 for 2016.
Raytheon completed in June a design review and qualification test for the GPS Operational Control System, Shalal reports.
The service branch will subject the GPS OCX platform to a mandatory review through October after Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James announced on June 30 that the system exceeded congressional cost thresholds, according to the report.
