According to the Department of Defense: “Raytheon Co., Tucson, Ariz., is being awarded a $5, 862, 927 modification to previously awarded contract (N00024-07-C-5437) to exercise options for engineering and technical services in support of the MK15 Phalanx Close-In-Weapon System. Phalanx Close-In Weapon System is a fast reaction terminal defense against low and high flying, high-speed maneuvering anti-ship missile threats that have penetrated all other ships’ defenses. The Phalanx Close-In Weapon System is an integral element of the Fleet Defense In-Depth concept and the Ship Self-Defense Program. Operating either autonomously or integrated with a combat system, it is an automatic terminal defense weapon system designed to detect, track, engage, and destroy anti-ship missile threats penetrating other defense envelopes. Phalanx Close-In Weapon System is currently installed on approximately 187 U.S. Navy ships and is in use in 20 foreign navies. Work will be performed in Tucson, Ariz., and is expected to be completed by September 2010. Contract funds will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.”
