Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) has secured a $178 million contract to help the U.S. Air Force transition to an open architecture-based ground infrastructure for processing global intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data.
The company will provide field support services to the branch’s Distributed Common Ground System modernization project, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.
According to the service, DCGS uses a global communications architecture to link a network of sensors and intelligence platforms such as RQ-4 Global Hawk and MQ-1 Predator unmanned aircraft.
The system support operations of U.S. unified combatant commands, NATO and the United Nations, the Air Force noted.
Work under the firm-fixed-price contract will take place in Dulles, Virginia, through March 8, 2026. The branch is obligating $2.3 million at the time of award.
