Raytheon‘s (NYSE: RTN) integrated defense systems business has received a potential $98.8M contract to help the U.S. Navy engineer a radar system designed to operate over two frequency ranges simultaneously.

Services will encompass system updates, engineering change proposals, product support, test, installation and integration, program management, analyses and studies for the Dual Band Radar platform, the Department of Defense said Friday.

The cost-plus-fixed fee contract has a $38.1M base value and will reach its maximum value if the Navy exercises all options.

Seventy percent of the work will occur in Tewksbury, Mass., and the remaining 30 percent will take place in Andover, Mass., Moorestown, N.J., and Arvonia, Va.

The Navy will initially obligate $2.5M in fiscal 2019 shipbuilding, conversion, research, development, test and evaluation funds.

DBR combines the features of S-band and X-band radars and uses a single resource manager to coordinated frequencies.
