ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez says Raytheon’s manufacturing unit in Albuquerque is adding 60 new high-tech manufacturing jobs.
Martinez’s office says Raytheon’s expanded operations will support the development and production of directed energy systems, range monitoring systems, and telemetry systems for U.S. and coalition partners.
The newly created jobs will include program management positions, engineering and other technical jobs.
The Albuquerque site, acquired by Raytheon in 2011, supports the production of high-powered microwave directed energy technology and aircraft range monitoring systems.
Nearly 200 employees currently work on site.
The Raytheon operation in Albuquerque is part of Tucson-based Raytheon Missile Systems.
Massachusetts-based Raytheon specializes in defense, civil government and cybersecurity solutions.
