Raytheon Wins $167M Navy Contract

Raytheon has been awarded a $167 million contract for Navy AIM-9X infrared-guided air-to-air missiles.

 

Raytheon will provide the U.S. military with AIM-9X Block I missiles. The contract adds to the more than 3.600 AIM-9X Block I missiles that Raytheon has already provided to 8 countries. Raytheon will also help the Navy add new capabilities to and introduce their AIM-9X Block II, which the Navy started testing last year.

 

“By leveraging our experience building the AIM-9X Block I, we plan to begin production of AIM-9X Block II in late 2010, ” said Raytheon’s AIM-9X program director, Dave Adams. “Test after test has demonstrated the reliability of the AIM-9X Block I, and we intend to continue delivering this level of performance to the warfighter with AIM-9X Block II.”

“The delivery of these CATM rounds is a critical first step in delivering a revolutionary new capability to the warfighter, ” said Jeffrey Penfield, the U.S. Navy’s air-to-air missile program manager.
