UK Air Force Awards Raytheon $159M Contract Extension for Surveillance Aircraft Support Services

The U.K.-based subsidiary of Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) has secured a five-year, $159.3 million contract extension from the British air force to manage support services for the country’s Sentinel surveillance aircraft fleet.

Raytheon said Friday it will optimize the design, modification, configuration management and support activities on Sentinel aircraft at the air station in Waddington and at a company facility in Broughton, Wales through 2021.

Raytheon provides fleet, obsolescence and overarching service management; maintenance, technical, engineering, supply, procurement and design services; maintenance planning; air vehicle integrity and training for the Sentinel fleet.

Raytheon invested in a new hangar at Broughton to address the operational availability of the company’s airborne intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance products.

The investment will also aid export work and Sentinel support efforts, Raytheon noted.
