The article reports on a protest filed by Raytheon Co., a losing bidder for the Army's and Air Force's Joint Cargo Aircraft, against the U.S. Government Accountability Office over a large price difference between its offering compared to L-3 Communications Holdings, the award winner. According to Jon Jones, president of Raytheon, that difference could be larger if longer term costs of the aircraft were accounted for.
