Missile Systems achieved a score of 851, just 14 points shy of perfect. DSS awarded the score and rating after a week-long audit of the Tucson, Arizona, plant site.

“Raytheon’s commitment to national security is unwavering,” said Dr. Taylor W. Lawrence, Raytheon Missile Systems president. “Everyone here understands the imperative to protect customer information. This superior rating validates all of our hard work and dedication.”

Supporting national security and the military, DSS is responsible for approximately 13,000 cleared contractor facilities. The agency ensures the security of the nation’s technological base and oversees the protection of U.S. and foreign classified information in industry. Fewer than four percent of the facilities DSS oversees receive a superior rating.
