Raytheon has won a $17.2 million Foreign Military Sales contract modification to supply capability upgrades for South Korea’s Patriot Air and Missile Defense System.
Under the contract, which was awarded by the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, Raytheon will provide prime-power equipment as an alternative power source for Patriot system operations, as well as deliver communications equipment to improve Patriot interoperability with air-defense command centers.
Sanjay Kapoor, vice president of Patriot Programs at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS), said “This is an opportunity to further our working relationship with the South Korean industry. Raytheon’s major subcontract partner in South Korea, EHWA Technologies Information, has a robust and proven portfolio of products in power systems for the Republic of Korea Air Force and will be a key partner for these improvements.”
Work under the contract will be performed by Raytheon IDS at its Integrated Air Defense Center in Andover, Mass., and at the company subcontractor facilities in South Korea.
Raytheon IDS is the prime contractor for domestic and international Patriot air and missile defense systems and systems integrator for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles.
