Harrington joined Raytheon with its June 2006 acquisition of Virtual Technology Corporation (VTC), a very fast-growing firm that he led most recently as president and CEO and that he founded 11 years ago.

"Jack's deep knowledge of command and control systems and modeling and simulation provides unique insights into the needs of our customers," said NCS President Colin Schottlaender. "He also brings a wealth of program management and systems software engineering experience." Harrington succeeds Brian McKeon who joined Raytheon Systems Limited in the United Kingdom earlier this year as president and managing director.

Harrington's extensive career has been devoted to supporting Department of Defense technology development. He has more than 18 years experience providing advanced technology engineering support to customers such as Joint Staff; U.S. Central Command; Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications, Tactical; Naval Air Systems Command; Defense Information Systems Agency; and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Harrington established VTC in 1994 and built the company from three to 125 professionals around the world. Under his leadership, VTC became a leader in the field of distributed modeling and simulation and joint C4ISR(command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) interoperability. He received a bachelor's degree in computer science from George Mason University and is a graduate of MIT's distinguished "Birthing of Giants" entrepreneurial program.

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), with 2005 sales of $21.9 billion, is an industry leader in defense and government electronics, space, information technology, technical services, and business and special mission aircraft. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 80,000 people worldwide.
