SANTA CLARA, Calif., 25 Feb. 2007.Agilent Technologies Inc. has been awarded a $12.6 million contract by Raytheon Company of Tucson, Ariz., to deliver a next-generation automated manufacturing test platform. Raytheon expects this new platform to provide benefits in cycle time, test equipment utilization, and labor content.

Raytheon will initially use the system for functional and diagnostic testing of components within missile guidance systems. The system can be expanded to accommodate new requirements as well as new test strategies intended to reduce the overall cost of testing.

The project is a joint effort. Using this automated approach, Raytheon plans to replace 17 stand-alone test systems with seven units that are capable of automated testing.
