Raytheon to Help BAE Refresh South Korea F-16 Radars; Jim Hvizd Comments

F16FleetBAE Systems and Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) have signed a contract that calls for Raytheon to supply an integrated tactical radar and electronic warfare system to BAE, the prime contractor for the South Korea F-16 modernization program.

Raytheon will provide its Advanced Combat Radar, ALR-69A digital warning receiver, weapon technology and mission computers for retrofit onto South Korea’s KF-16C/D Block 52 aircraft, Raytheon said Friday.

Jim Hvizd, vice president of international strategy and business development for Raytheon’s space and airborne systems segment, said the business aims to grow its footing in the F-16 systems market.

The company booked the contract during the fourth quarter of its 2013 fiscal year.

Raytheon’s active electronically scanned array radars are used in the EA-18G Growler, F-15C, F-15E and F/A-18E/F fighter jets.
