MARLBOROUGH, Mass. --- Raytheon Company has been awarded an initial installment of $27 million for satellite communications (SATCOM) terminals in support of a Space and Naval Warfare Systems contract potentially worth $38 million.
Under the firm-fixed-price contract, Raytheon Network Centric Systems will deliver nine extremely high frequency follow-on terminals to the U.S. Navy. These terminals are a vital element in the Navy's SATCOM program and precede the Navy Multiband Terminal, or NMT, awarded to Raytheon last month.
"This award, along with our recent NMT win, recognizes the depth of Raytheon's SATCOM expertise," said Jerry Powlen, vice president, Network Centric Systems' Integrated Communications Systems. "We continue to improve the reliability and performance of our SATCOM systems while delivering new and innovative solutions across the fleet."
Raytheon will continue to provide Mission Support services as part of an existing Navy SATCOM engineering services contract.
Raytheon Company, with 2006 sales of $20.3 billion, is a technology leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 73,000 people worldwide.
