For much of his career, Dr. Raue was employed with TRW Electronic Systems in Redondo Beach, California. Hired as a research engineer in 1969, he was subsequently promoted as a department manager, senior research scientist and advanced systems manager. Mainly involved in the aerospace, automotive and credit reporting sectors, TRW was recognized as an innovator in the research, development and manufacture of electronic systems, integrated circuits, computers, as well as software development and systems engineering. During the length of Dr. Raue's tenure with the organization, he specialized in electromagnetic waves, specifically in the development of solid state transmitters and receivers in the millimeter wave frequency range, which at the time was still a nascent field of research, and which resulted in the publication of numerous technical papers.
Outside of his work in the development of advanced electronic systems, Dr. Raue served as an educator for numerous years. After graduating from college, he became a faculty member and the department chairperson at the Milwaukee School of Engineering between 1961 and 1969.

As a professional, scholar and researcher in his field, he notably contributed numerous scientific articles in scholarly journals.
Born in Germany, Dr. Raue immigrated to the U.S. by himself at the age of 15 and lived with a pastor and his family in Wisconsin. After high school, he decided to return home and began working in interpreting. Then, in 1955, he joined the U.S. Army and served for three years. Subsequently he began studying at the Milwaukee School of Engineering where he later graduated with a Bachelor of Science in electric engineering in 1961. Dr. Raue also received both a Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in electrical engineering at Marquette University in 1965 and 1968, respectively. During his years pursuing his degrees, Dr. Raue had the pleasure of being mentored by two professors that helped him develop a passion for electromagnetic waves and millimeter wave power sources that inspired his doctoral research.
Apart from his paid positions, Dr. Raue volunteered his time with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy. A nonprofit organization based on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in southwestern Los Angeles County, its mission is to preserve land and restore the habitat for both educational and recreational purposes. To commemorate his professional and civic accomplishments, Dr. Raue received a Distinguished Teacher Award in 1968 from the Milwaukee School of Engineering, and was later named as an Outstanding Alumnus of the Year in 1985. Likewise, for his military career, he received a Certificate of Achievement in 1958 from the U.S. Army and a Letter of Recognition in 1992 from Robert Gates, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, for outstanding service to the nation.
