Our Experience

When most people hear of Raytheon, they think of the company’s well-regarded aerospace and defence capabilities. But RPS’s history of seven decades in outsourcing training demonstrates a well-developed acumen for learning solutions. Our expertise comes from the integration of training businesses that Raytheon has acquired over the years.

1930s: Through a Raytheon predecessor, we leveraged the invention of the Link simulator to evolve into the pre-eminent builder of flight simulators in the United States.

1960s: We applied our simulation expertise to the Gemini and Apollo programmes, and later to Skylab, Space Shuttle and Space Station programmes.

1980s: RPS launched new systems-based curriculum design and training administration services to respond to the U.S. Department of Defence’s shift from buying simulators to hiring trained pilots.

1990s: RPS expanded into commercial training programmes, primarily within the automotive industry. We started in North America, and then moved into Europe and Asia Pacific. Two of our programmes are among the largest training outsourcing contracts ever awarded in the commercial sector.

Today: RPS is part of Raytheon’s Intelligence, Information and Services business. We continue to invest in innovative learning technologies and practices as we expand into new industries and regions. We opened a shared services centre in Barcelona in 2004, followed by another in Detroit in 2006. We established a presence in Russia in 2005 and in Mexico in 2006. Our growth strategy is founded on leadership in learning innovation and global scale, especially in emerging markets.
