Raytheon Co. has won a one-year, $86 million contract renewal from the Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation for the Live Training Program, the company announced today.
Under the new option, Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC of Reston, Va., will continue providing lifecycle contractor support services for tactical engagement, instrumentation, and range training devices and systems for the program. The program also provides worldwide instructional and maintenance support of Tactical Engagement Systems.
The Raytheon program management office is in Orlando, Fla. The company will perform work at Army facilities in Fort Irwin, Calif.; Hohenfels, Germany; Fort Polk, La., and other sites worldwide.
The program provides staff for 16 field sites worldwide from its central depot at Pomona, Calif., including Germany, Italy, Korea and Kuwait. The company expects to complete the work by October 2005.
The award is the sixth of seven one-year options under an eight-year contract, the company said. The Army awarded Raytheon the original contract in 1999 with an initial potential value of $400 million. Since that time, the contract has grown to a potential value of more than $900 million.
Raytheon Technical Services Company is a unit of Raytheon Co. of Waltham, Mass. The company has more than 78,000 employees and annual sales of $18.1 billion. It ranks No. 7 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
