Raytheon‘s (NYSE: RTN) missiles systems business has received a $395.5M contract modification to procure materials and spares needed for fiscal 2017 through 2018 production of the Standard Missile-6.

The award holds options that may raise the previously awarded contract’s maximum potential value to $579.7M, the Defense Department said Friday.

The company will perform work in Arkansas, Arizona, Massachusetts, Ohio, California, Alabama, Texas, the U.K. and other locations through September 2022.
