Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has won a three-year, $35.9 million contract from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency to build a border security and surveillance system for a partner nation.

The company will design and develop the system along sections of Jordan’s border under the CTR Integrating contract, awarded in June 2011, Raytheon said Thursday.

DTRA is the Pentagon’s official combat agency for countering weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear, biological, chemical, radiological and high explosive weapons.

John Harris, Raytheon vice president and general manager for intelligence, information and services, said the company aims to provide open architecture equipment and sensors for DTRA and other customers.

Raytheon will also maintain the system under the multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
