Raytheon to Build More Destroyer Ship Radars Under $250M Navy Contract; Scott Spence Quoted

Jeff Brody

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has been awarded a $250M contract to manufacture an additional two shipsets of an air and missile defense radar system for the U.S. Navy.

The company said Friday it will build the SPY-6 radars at a facility in Andover, Mass., for integration onto the service branch's updated DDG-51 guided missile destroyers.

The latest order brings the number of contracted radar systems for the Flight III upgrade program to nine.

Scott Spence, senior director of naval radar systems at Raytheon, said that SPY-6 technology is designed to have greater range and sensitivity levels than legacy sensors as well as support data sharing via geographically dispersed vessels.

He added the system offers the Navy operational flexibility to protect ships from missile, surface and airborne threats.

Raytheon noted it remains on track to deliver an AN/SPY-6(V) radar to the future USS Jack H. Lucas destroyer.

The company aims to provide the initial AN/SPY-6(V)2 unit for the LHA-8 amphibious assault vessel in 2021.
