Company Information
Raytheon Systems Limited is the UK-based subsidiary of Raytheon Company. It is a prime contractor and major supplier to the UK Ministry of Defence and has developed strong capabilities in mission systems integration in defence, national security and commercial markets. RSL designs, develops and manufactures a range of high technology electronic systems and software at its facilities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Raytheon employs 72,000 people worldwide.

Programme Information

Raytheon Systems Limited (RSL) has been awarded a 750 million Government programme to deliver an IT enabled, transformed Border security capability for the UK.

This involves project/programme management on a very large scale for the design, development and implementation of state of the art secure systems and software. RSL, as prime contractor, is responsible for overseeing the work of 5 major subcontracts and for working alongside and in partnership with the customer to jointly ensure programme success

e-Borders will collect and analyse passenger and crew data, provided by carriers (air, sea and rail), in respect of all journeys to and from the UK in advance of their travel.

This will support an intelligence-led approach to operating border controls, by identifying those involved in abuse of UK immigration laws, serious and organised crime and terrorism. Border control agencies include Immigration service, Police service, Serious and Organised Crime Agency Customs and UKvisas.

Nature and Scope
The IT infrastructure required to support the Programme sites across the UK and worldwide, and the required communications with customers and partners is necessarily complex, and the volume of data and transactions requires an exceptional level of performance from the databases.

This complexity is increased by the nature of the Programme requiring stringent security rules to be applied. These rules require high, auditable levels of segregation and separation of both data and networks.
