Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has received a $393 million contract to continue to provide maintenance and sustainment support for the U.S. Air Force’s Distributed Common Ground System.

The DCGS platform works to help military personnel collect, process and share intelligence data derived from sensors, Raytheon said Wednesday.

MQ-1 Predator, RQ-4 Global Hawk, MQ-9 Reaper and other unmanned reconnaissance and surveillance aircraft carry the sensors.

“We clearly understand the importance and our responsibility to sustain and maintain this critical capability for our armed forces, ” said Dave Wajsgras, president of the intelligence, information and services segment at Raytheon.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center awarded the contract, which also covers mission support for the Air Combat Command’s 25th Air Force unit.
