Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has received a potential five-year, $161 million contract to provide support services at a U.S. Army facility built to prepare brigade combat teams and other units for missions.

The company said Tuesday it will perform work at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin in California under the cost-plus-incentive-fee contract, which runs through June 29, 2023.
