Contract Award – Raytheon – $241 Million – Navy

The US Navy has awarded Raytheon a $241 million contract to provide open architecture software for Zumwalt class destroyers.

Under the contract, the software development will help integrate human-computer interface for damage control systems and engineering machinery. Raytheon will deliver technical data manager capabilities and computer-graphical user interface to control the propulsion, auxiliary systems, damage control and integrated power.

Robert Martin, VP and deputy of Seapower Capability Systems at Raytheon’s IDS, said “This is the most readily expandable, sophisticated software suite ever designed for a naval surface combatant, allowing the warfighter to address threats faster and more effectively than ever before. The high level of automation and intuitive human- computer interface of the ship’s systems will dramatically reduce manning, resulting in significant cost savings for the Navy.”
