LONDON, 19 July 2010. Raytheon Company and Serco Limited (Serco) have teamed to provide a low-risk, cost-effective solution for the U.K. Ministry of Defence (MOD) Joint Military Air Traffic Services program. Known as Project Marshall, JMATS is a managed service program spanning 22 years, which requires the delivery and management of network-based services, applications, equipment, and training in MOD military airfields and for deployed operations.

"Raytheon and Serco's managed service partnership draws on the strengths of both companies," says Richard Daniel, senior director for Raytheon Systems Limited. "Collectively, we have expertise across the entire JMATS requirement and the ability to deliver services safely, rapidly and cost effectively."

"Serco's core business is to provide services underpinned by the right combination of people, processes and technology," says Andrew White, chief executive of Serco's defense business. "That approach, together with our joint track record of supporting defense aviation, makes the Raytheon-Serco team a strong contender to deliver the MOD's objectives for JMATS."
