Raytheon is a major missile manufacturer. Founded in 1922, it makes Patriot & Tomahawk missiles and the GBU- 28, a 5,000-pound "bunker buster" bomb. In addition to missiles, Raytheon also builds sensors and radars used on drone aircraft used in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Yemen. E-Systems, now a Raytheon subsidiary, won a contract to maintain planes for the U.S.-funded Operation Condor to monitor drug trafficking in the Mexican state of Sinaloa in the mid-1970s. A 1985 U.S. congressional study found that the contract was ''a shambles ... There are no adequate records to indicate how the funds have been and are being spent.'' The study also cited incidents of planes being used for joy rides.
