Raytheon Secures $960M Contract to Support US Joint Service Satcom Terminals

Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) has been awarded a $960 million contract to provide hardware and software procurement services to the U.S. Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center for the terminal segment of a joint service satellite communications system.

The company will also conduct logistics and depot activation efforts for the Advanced Extremely High Frequency-Terminal infrastructure as part of the 10-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Department of Defense said Friday.

DOD noted that the Space Force, which operates the AEHF constellation, is obligating $1.35 million in fiscal 2021 procurement funds on the sole-source award.

The AEHF system consists of satellites in geosynchronous earth orbit, ground-based mission control and associated communications links and terminals being used by U.S. military branches and international partners.

Several Department of Defense officials have been lined up to speak at GovCon Wire’s Space Acquisition Forum on Sept. 14. Visit the GCW website to register for this virtual forum and view other upcoming events.
