A Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) business has secured a potential five-year, $1.68 billion contract from the U.S. Navy to provide modernization, activation and sustainment support for Total Ship Computing Environment infrastructure and mission systems of Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyers.
Raytheon Missiles & Defense will also provide non-recurring engineering support to facilitate combat system installation, testing, integration, development, correction, modernization and maintenance of mission systems of DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class ships under the cost-plus-incentive-fee contract, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.
The contract has a one-year base period valued at approximately $482.7 million.
Work will occur in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, California, New Hampshire, Mississippi and Indiana and could run through April 2027 if all options are exercised.
Raytheon said it will provide professionals and services to finalize the activation and launch of three Zumwalt-class destroyers as it continues to work on warfare and technology capabilities.
Wes Kremer, president of Raytheon Missiles & Defense, said the contract highlights the company’s role as a systems integrator and efforts to provide cyber protection, software development and upgrades and other support services to the Navy’s Zumwalt ships.
