Raytheon Gains $212 Million THAAD Radar Contract
The Missile Defense Agency awarded Raytheon Co. [RTN] a $212 million contract for a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense radar, the company announced.
Under the contract, Raytheon will manufacture, deliver and provide integration support for one THAAD radar, also called the AN/TPY-2 radar. Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will manufacture one AN/TPY-2 radar.
Separately, Raytheon announced that it is ready to deliver the Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT) satellite communication system to the Navy for formal tests.
NMT is a system of submarine, shore-based and shipboard communications terminals for the transformational SATCOM component of the Navy FORCEnet concept.
Raytheon also completed additional readiness milestones, including rugged environment testing of its NMT, two years ahead of schedule.
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, on behalf of its organizational partner, the Navy’s Program Executive Office for C4I, expects to downselect the NMT contract to a single performer during April through June.
Raytheon’s NMT solution builds upon the existing library of stable, non- proprietary software in the Department of Defense – software developed and fielded by Raytheon in more than 900 military SATCOM terminals delivered and used in global operations.
