Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has secured a delivery order to help the U.S. Navy integrate seeker suite technology and processing components into the latest variant of Tomahawk cruise missiles.
The Defense Department said Wednesday the company will conduct analysis, trade studies, architecture, modeling, simulation development, evaluation and prototyping activities in support of the Tactical Tomahawk Block IV All-Up-Round missile systems as part of the Maritime Strike Tomahawk Program.
Work will occur primarily in Tucson, Arizona; Dallas, Texas; and Boulder, Colorado through August 2019.
The Naval Air Systems Command will obligate $9.4 million on the award from the service branch’s fiscal 2017 research, development, test and evaluation funds.
Tomahawk Block IV missiles are launched from ships and submarines and designed to engage high-value targets located more than 1,000 miles away.
