Raytheon, Lockheed Martin Ink Navy Contracts

According to the Department of Defense, “Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) is being awarded a $52, 250, 000 modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-09-C-0003) for the procurement of 19 AN/APG-79 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radars to be retrofitted into F/A-18E/F aircraft Lots 26-29.  The AN/APG-79 AESA radar, which will replace the APG-73 radar, will provide increased air-to-air detection and track range, increased air-to-ground targeting capabilities, longer launch range for standoff weapons, enhanced capability against advanced threats, and optimized utilization of the aircraft’s weapon systems contributing to the F/A-18E/F’s survivability.  Work will be performed in Forest, Miss.
