Raytheon Awarded $781M Modification on Navy Ship Radar Integration, Production Contract

Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) will continue manufacturing air and missile defense radar systems for installation on U.S. Navy ships under a potential $781 million contract modification.

This award for AN/SPY-6(V) integration and production support services has a $67.7 million face value and will reach the ceiling amount if the military branch exercises all options, the Department of Defense said Friday.

Naval Sea Systems Command will obligate $36.8 million at the time of award and expects initial support services to conclude in December 2021. Exercising all contract options would extend the performance period to November 2024, DOD noted.

The Raytheon Missiles & Defense business delivered the first AN/SPY-6(V)1 array to the Navy for integration onto USS Jack H. Lucas, the branch’s first Flight III guided-missile destroyer.

The SPY-6 radar system is designed to perform simultaneous air, missile and surface defense functions on seven naval ship classes.
