The Defense Department said Friday Raytheon’s integrated defense systems unit will continue to provide logistics support, transition and transfer, depot transition and sustaining engineering services for the Army Navy Transportable Radar Surveillance Model 2 and Sea-Based X-Band radar systems.

DoD noted the follow-on IDIQ contract’s ordering period will commence Nov. 1, 2017 and run through Oct. 31, 2020.
The contract also contains four successive one-year option periods, the department added.
MDA obligated $1.2 million in fiscal 2017 research, development, test and evaluation funds at the time of award.
Work will occur in Woburn, Massachusetts, and various stateside and overseas locations.
