Raytheon to Modernize US Navy, South Korea Close-In Weapon Systems Under $344M Contract

Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) has secured a potential $344.4 million sole-source contract to update MK-15 close-in weapon systems for the U.S. Navy and South Korea.

The company’s missiles and defense business will modernize the radar-guided gun systems and provide associate hardware to customers as part of the firm-fixed-price contract, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Eighty-five percent of contract services will support the Navy and the remaining 15 percent will address a foreign military sales requirement.

The award has a $136.5 million initial value and would reach its potential value if all options are exercised.

Raytheon designed the Phalanx CIWS system to help navies counter close-in threats such as anti-ship missiles at sea and on land.
