Kontron has a proven history of meeting harsh environment reliability and SWAP-C requirements with scalable, long-life COTS platforms that help speed deployments while addressing budget limitations.

"It is an honor to be one of only 16 suppliers selected for the distinguished 5-Star Award that recognizes Kontron’s continued excellence as a supplier partner," said Andy Mason, General Manager R&D/Operations at Kontron. "We greatly value the strong, strategic relationship we have built with Raytheon, and I congratulate our deserving team for maintaining service, quality and on-time delivery at the highest levels. Working together to maintain this high standard is an important component that contributes to our mutual success in meeting the technology needs of the defense industry."

Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business instituted the annual Supplier Excellence Awards program to recognize suppliers who have provided outstanding service and partnership in exceeding customer requirements over the previous year.
