Raytheon logoRaytheon (NYSE: RTN) has received a potential five-year, $350.6 million contract to provide the U.S. Army with the Advanced Range Tracking and Imaging System.

Contract work will run through May 5, 2021.

The service branch will determine funds and performance location upon award of each task order, according to DoD.
