The Waltham, Massachusetts-based aerospace and defense contractor said Tuesday it logged a total backlog of $154 billion at the end of the quarter with defense segment accounting for $62 billion of that backlog.

Major defense-related bookings during the quarter include $1.1 billion in classified bookings at Raytheon’s intelligence and space business and a $651 million SPY-6 production and sustainment contract secured by the company’s missiles and defense business from the U.S. Navy.

Pratt & Whitney saw its sales rise 12 percent to $4.5 billion during the quarter, while Raytheon Intelligence and Space reported $3.6 billion in sales, a 5 percent drop from the prior-year period driven by the sale of the contractor’s global training and services business.

Raytheon Missiles and Defense generated $3.5 billion in Q1 2022 sales, reflecting a 7 percent decline from the prior-year period due to supply chain constraints and reductions in certain air defense and ground warfare programs.
