The Raytheon Company is a major American defense contractor and industrial corporation with core manufacturing concentrations in weapons and military and commercial electronics. It was previously involved in corporate and special-mission aircraft until early 2007. Raytheon is the world's largest producer of guided missiles.Established in 1922, the company reincorporated in 1928 and adopted its present name in 1959. The company has around 63,000 employees worldwide and annual revenues of approximately US$25 billion. More than 90% of Raytheon's revenues were obtained from military contracts and, as of 2012, it was the fifth-largest military contractor in the world, and is the fourth largest defense contractor in the United States by revenue.Raytheon's headquarters moved from Lexington, Massachusetts to Waltham, Massachusetts in 2003. The company was previously headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts from 1922 to 1928, Newton, Massachusetts from 1928 to 1941, Waltham from 1941 to 1961, Lexington from 1961 to 2003, and back to Waltham from 2003 onwards.

Disclosed herein are energetic compositions and methods of making thereof. A composition includes hydrazinium nitroformate (HNF) particles dispersed in a polymeric binder and a bonding agent bonded to a surface of at least a portion the HNF particles. The bonding agent disclosed is a Lewis acid.


Embodiments of an integrated motor drive power electronics system are generally described herein. In some embodiments, the integrated motor drive power electronics system includes an active line filter (ALF) configured to control and regulate current drawn from an input power source and to attenuate current ripple fed back to the input power source, an energy storage capacitance coupled to an output of the active line filter, and a bidirectional low voltage power supply (LVPS). In some embodiments, the bidirectional LVPS may provide regulated power to a load and may selectively recycle power back to the input power source and regulate voltage at the load to a predetermined output voltage. In some embodiments, the energy storage capacitance may serve as a local input power source for higher power motor drive electronics and the bidirectional LVPS.

In one embodiment, a method for scheduling in a high-performance computing (HPC) system includes receiving a call from a management engine that manages a cluster of nodes in the HPC system. The call specifies a request including a job for scheduling. The method further includes determining whether the request is spatial, compact, or nonspatial and noncompact. The method further includes, if the request is spatial, generating one or more spatial combinations of nodes in the cluster and selecting one of the spatial combinations that is schedulable. The method further includes, if the request is compact, generating one or more compact combinations of nodes in the cluster and selecting one of the compact combinations that is schedulable. The method further includes, if the request is nonspatial and noncompact, identifying one or more schedulable nodes and generating a nonspatial and noncompact combination of nodes in the cluster.

A microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) package includes a substrate extending between a first pair of outer edges to define a length and a second pair of outer edges to define a width. A seal ring assembly is disposed on the substrate and includes at least one seal ring creating a first boundary point adjacent to at least one MEMS device and a second boundary point adjacent at least one of the outer edges. The package further includes a window lid on the seal ring assembly to define a seal gap containing the at least one MEMS device. The seal ring assembly anchors the window lid to the substrate at the second boundary point such that deflection of the window lid into the seal gap is reduced.


Pressure variations within a solid propellant rocket motor produce like variations in the optical radiance of the exhaust plume. The periodicity of the variation is related to the length L of the rocket motor or speed of sound in the rocket motor combustion chamber to length ratio a/L. The optical radiance is collected and converted to electrical signals sampled at or above the Nyquist rate. The sampled data is assembled to form a high fidelity time sequence. A window of sampled data is processed to form a signal frequency spectrum. The mode structure in the frequency spectrum is related to the rocket motor length or speed of sound in the rocket motor chamber to length ratio. The rocket motor length or speed of sound to length ratio is used alone or in combination with other information to either classify or identify the rocket motor.

A direct geolocation approach for estimating a location of a stationary emitter located on the Earth surface is provided. The approach uses data collected during a plurality of time periods including Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) and Frequency Difference of Arrival (FDOA) measurements of a radar pulse sent from the emitter, and altitude measurements of an aircraft above the Earth surface. The approach includes estimating a location of the emitter for each of the time periods based on the TDOA, FDOA, and altitude measurements associated with a respective time period. The estimated location of the stationary emitter includes possible longitude and latitude of the emitter. The approach further includes averaging the estimated locations associated with the plurality of time periods to form an averaged estimated location of the emitter. A convenient example of the approach computes the location of the emitter based on the averaged estimated location.

An antenna is provided and includes a plate and an aperture assembly attached to the plate. The aperture assembly includes sticks that respectively include a spacer, a carrier formed separately from the spacer and on which circulators are disposed, a base defining recesses from which bosses interleaved with the recesses protrude and fasteners disposed to fasten the spacer to the base at boss locations with the carrier interposed between the spacer and the base and the circulators aligned with the recesses. The aperture assembly further includes conductive elements extending through the plate and the base for electric coupling to the circulators. Adjacent sticks define a slot extending forwardly from the plate. The slot is notched at a corresponding circulator and rounded forwardly from the corresponding circulator.
