Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has won a potential $71.8 million contract to engineer, manufacture and develop the U.S. Air Force‘s three-dimensional expeditionary long-range radar systems.

The 3DELRR EMD contract has a $19, 502, 764 base value and calls for the company to deliver up to six radar platforms, as well as product support to the military branch, the Defense Department said Monday.

Raytheon’s integrated defense systems unit will perform the work in Andover and Sudbury, Massachusetts, and expects to complete work by Oct. 31, 2018.

DoD says the ground-based sensor will be built to detect, identify, track and report aerial threats through the Air Force’s Theater Air Control System.

The service received three bids for the 3DELRR program and is obligating $11 million at the time of award from fiscal 2014 research, development and evaluation funds.

Raytheon,  Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) developed 3DELRR prototype models under the program’s preliminary design review phase.
