Raytheon supports aerospace research at Canadian universities

  • 29-Sep-2010 11:22 EDT

Raytheon Co. awarded Dalhousie and Memorial universities grants totaling $500,000 to advance research in the aerospace industry. Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, will receive $100,000 for research to determine the effect of thermal interface materials and quantify their properties in severe airborne environments. Memorial University, St. John's, Newfoundland, will receive $400,000 to advance research into remote sensor technology for wake detection. Canada's Industrial and Regional Benefits policy requires prime contractors to make investments in the Canadian economy valued at 100% of the contract value as an element of defense and security procurements made by Canada. Raytheon's investment with Dalhousie and Memorial universities is a result of this policy.
