Jeff Brody

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has won a potential seven-year, $494.9M contract from the U.S. Air Force to replace  solid-state radar modules designed to support missile defense, space surveillance and satellite warning operations at a military station located in England.

The company will produce 148 qualification units for Precision Acquisition Vehicle Entry Phased Array Warning System and Ballistic Missile Early Warning System radars installed at Fylingdales Royal Air Force Station under the first phase of the SSM-R program, the Department of Defense said Friday.

Phase 2 covers full-rate production of more than 40K spare, out-of-band replacement and sensitivity improvement items.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center received three offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract and will obligate $33.3M in fiscal 2019 space procurement funds at the time of award.

Raytheon will perform contract work in Woburn, Mass. The IDIQ has a base ordering period of five years, followed by a two-year option that would conclude by Sept. 19, 2026.

Personnel at RAF Fylingdales aim to provide an early warning to U.K. and U.S. governments if a potential incoming missile threat re-enters the atmosphere.
