Raytheon Technologies' (NYSE: RTX) missiles and defense business has secured a $239.1M contract modification with the U.S. Air Force to produce a sixth batch of Stormbreaker weapons equipped with a tri-mode seeker technology.
This award involves classified foreign military sales, with 6.3 percent of the total contract value supporting FMS transactions, and the Department of Defense said Thursday.
DoD posted the modification one day after Raytheon Technologies announced its StormBreaker munition technology was cleared for mission deployment with Air Combat Command's F-15E aircraft.
The weapon is designed to locate fixed or moving targets with infrared, millimeter wave and semi-active laser technologies, according to the company.
USAF initially awarded an undefinitized $32.8M StormBreaker Lot 6 contract in April and will obligate $265.3M on definitization mod at the time of award.
Efforts are underway to integrate the weapon system on USAF's F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and the U.S. Navy's F/A-18E/F Super Hornet aircraft.
