Our Purpose

We Solve Great Challenges

At Raven, we aspire to Solve Great Challenges. This is our role in the world and why we exist as an organization. Our purpose is bold and authentic; it keeps us grounded in markets that have meaning, provide profitable growth, and align with our values.

Raven is comprised of three distinct business units, yet we are one unified and integrated company. Those qualities helped bring us to where we are today and will guide us in the future. We maintain a cohesion and unity at all levels by sharing a common purpose and core values. Our purpose, to solve great challenges, is what we aspire to do in a broad, enduring sense. This purpose has been evident since the start of our company when our founders set out to design and build high altitude research solutions for the emerging challenges of understanding space and our universe — and it drives us still today.

Putting it Into Practice

What does this mean to our important constituencies: our team members, our customers, our communities, and our shareholders?

For our team members, we take pride in what we do and have the opportunity to grow in our jobs. We care about our team members’ health and well-being by providing a safe work environment and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Above all we aim to:

  • Be fair and honest with team members
  • Provide them with meaningful, challenging work
  • Inspire and equip each team member to perform at their peak

For our customers, we deliver product value and outstanding customer service. Customers can count on us to deliver on our promises.

For our communities, we are a good corporate citizen, whether supporting local causes or reaching out to places in need. We do the right things in terms of health and safety, and we support the communities with our time, money, and leadership. Raven strives to be known as a socially responsible corporation.

For our shareholders, we are a company that lives up to its commitments and outperforms the competition and the market over the long run. Our shareholders expect us to make sound, sustainable financial decisions and to never forget to treat their money as if it were our own — and that is what we do. Raven shareholders can trust our statements and the integrity of our financial reports.

Our Vision + Values

Raven realizes our purpose by developing innovative solutions to great challenges related to the markets we understand and serve.
