Raytheon Dedicates New California Public Safety Technology Center (2/9/12)

Raytheon will dedicate its public-safety technology and research center in Southern California. The center will house hands-on solutions that public-safety agencies can use to improve day-to-day operations and their responses to major incidents.

A sample of the technologies includes:

• Regional communications: Vendor-neutral communications networks that let first responders connect their existing systems with the latest technologies in both LMR and Long Term Evolution (LTE) broadband solutions.

• Boomerang: A military combat-proven shooter detection system that helps law enforcement immediately locate the source of firearms being discharged.

• Controlled Impact Rescue Tool: Search-and-rescue tool capable of cutting through a reinforced concrete wall up to four times faster than with traditional methods such as drilling, chipping or sawing.

The Public Safety Regional Technology Center will be the only one of its kind in the nation focused solely on developing open architecture and communications standards for the public-safety market, and conducting research to answer public safety’s technological needs, company executives said.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Public Safety Regional Technology Center (RTC) in Downey, near Los Angeles, will take place Feb. 13. Daniel J. Crowley, president of Raytheon's Network Centric Systems business, and public-safety experts will deliver remarks and lead discussions on the demonstrations.

The technology center builds on Raytheon's presence in California, where the company has more than 11,000 employees, with all six Raytheon businesses represented in the state. Raytheon has also partnered with the UCLA School of Engineering to create the Public Safety Network Systems Laboratory, which held its first workshop for public-safety leaders in December.
