Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has been awarded a $15.8 million contract order to build an airborne GPS receiver for the Air Force, representing the first order under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
The company is scheduled to produce 323 MAGR 2000-S24 units under the IDIQ and complete the first order by June 2015, Raytheon said Wednesday.
Sharon Black, director of GPS and navigation systems for Raytheon’s space and airborne systems business, said future upgrade work on the systems could include replacing the electronics module card.
U.S. military organizations and its allies in Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions fly the systems on 20 types of fixed- and rotary-wing platforms.
Each system is built as an open architecture design and to resist interference and jamming.
