Todd Probert

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) will now commence work on a potential three-year, $600 million contract to provide software sustainment and upgrade support for the U.S. Army’s missile defense systems following the withdrawal of a bid protest in February.

The company said Monday it received the contract in June 2017 and will start accepting directions from the service branch within the next two months to facilitate the delivery of systems engineering and software sustainment support for several strategic platforms.

Those systems include the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense platform, Ground-Based Midcourse Defense System, AN/TPY-2 radars, Sea-Based X-Band Radar and upgraded early warning radars.

Todd Probert, vice president of mission support and modernization at Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services business, said the company will apply DevOps, Agile and other commercial software practices to ensure that the service’s systems work against evolving threats.

The company will perform work at the Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center’s systems simulation, software and integration directorate at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, and hire approximately 800 program managers, hardware and software engineers and other professional services personnel in support of the contract.
