The biggest football game of the year, Super Bowl XLII is being played this weekend. To boost the morale of U.S. troops on Navy ships Raytheon Technology is broadcasting the game to ships in the Pacific.

Raytheon says that its Global Broadcasting Service (GBS) military satellites typically used to send mission critical information to military and government decision makers will be used to broadcast the game.

"We are thrilled that our technology has enabled us to bring our deployed men and women a little closer to home through this broadcast," said Alan Goldey, Raytheon GBS program manager. "Raytheon has developed and sustained the GBS program into what the Air Force has declared to be one of its best managed military satellite communications programs."
