“Low-rate initial production begins our process of delivering this integral weapon system to the warfighter, ” said Frank Wyatt, vice president of Raytheon’s Air and Missile Defense Systems product line. “Standard Missile-6 remains on schedule, and we brought in the first three years of production well under the Navy’s budget.”
