SIERRA VISTA — Raytheon Co. expanded its presence in Southern Arizona Tuesday opening an office to support a $11 billion program to train U.S. Army personnel.
The program, run by Raytheon Technical Services Co.’s Warrior Training Alliance, will consolidate training at the U.S. Army Intelligence Center at Fort Huachuca and at other sites around the globe.
A new office here will provide training support and development through the program’s Warfighter Field Operations Customer Support, or FOCUS, contract, awarded in June 2007, a move that the company says will provide “significant savings” to the Pentagon. Raytheon would not disclose the dollar amount.
