Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) has secured two contract modifications worth $77.2M combined from the U.S. Navy to provide support services for Zumwalt-class destroyer ships and Evolved SeaSparrow missiles.

The first award, valued at $59.4M, exercises options under the DDG 1000 total ship activation contract and covers logistics, engineering and server procurement work, the Department of Defense said Monday.

The company will help the Navy develop a TSA test program, assess design drawings, as well as implement change proposals approved by the government and information assurance and cybersecurity requirements.

Work under this modification will take place in San Diego, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine and Indiana, through December 2021. The branch intends to obligate $5.5M at the time of award.

The second award, valued at $17.8M, tasks the company to perform engineering, design and operational support services for ESSM systems procured by the Navy, NATO consortium members and Japan.

Work will take place in Arizona, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Australia and other various locations through June 2021.

ESSM is designed to defend naval vessels from an enemy’s anti-ship missiles. Canada, Australia, the Netherlands and other NATO member countries have adopted the system.

Naval Sea Systems Command is the contracting activity for both modifications.
