Pratt & Whitney, now part of Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX), has secured a $111.1M contract modification to build propulsion systems designed to power the U.S. Marine Corps’ F-35B short takeoff and vertical landing aircraft.
This award represents an option for Pratt & Whitney to manufacture and deliver four F135-PW-600 engines to the service branch, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
Work will take place in Connecticut, Indianapolis and the U.K. through July 2022. The U.S. Navy will obligate the full amount of the modification from its aircraft procurement funds.
United Technologies Corp., the former parent organization of Pratt & Whitney, completed its merger with Raytheon in early April to create Raytheon Technologies.
