Raytheon gets Navy air defense logistics work

Raytheon Co. has won a $59 million contract to provide logistics support for a Navy program that enhances air and missile defense by pooling high-quality data from sensors and weapons.

Under the contract, Raytheon of Waltham, Mass., will furnish supply, repair and life-cycle support for the AN/USG-2 shipboard and AN-USG-3 airborne Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) systems. The Naval Inventory Control Point will oversee the work.

CEC provides real-time integration of fire control high quality sensor data into a single composite data source which can be used by multiple ships and airborne units for direct and remote missile launches. The result is a detailed air picture based on all sensor data available to provide early warning and consistent tracking of air threats.

Raytheon is expected to complete the work by April 2012. The work will be performed at company facilities in St. Petersburg, Fla., and Largo, Fla.

Raytheon has more than 73,000 employees and had annual sales of $20.3 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list of the largest federal IT contractors. The 2007 Top 100 list is due out May 14.
