Raytheon gets Navy F/A-18 radar task

Raytheon Co. will support a Navy radar warning receiver system under a new $16.6 million order placed by the Naval Inventory Control Point.

The contract is for performance-based logistics support of the ALR-67(V)3 radar warning receiver system, which protects crews of U.S. Navy F/A-18E/F carrier-based aircraft. The order covers the ninth annual increment in an 11-year contract.

The contract includes mission support of fielded systems, including repairs, spares, reliability and maintainability system improvements, obsolescence management and field installation support.

"By eliminating traditional repair turnaround times and increasing system reliability, we're able to achieve constant readiness for Navy F/A-18 warfighters," said Roy Azevedo, manager of Raytheon's Electronic Warfare business area.

The AN/ALR-67(V)3 system provides advanced techniques to detect and identify threat radar emitters, thereby enhancing the survivability of aircraft equipped with the system. More than 400 radar warning receivers plus spares have now been ordered under the overall production program, including systems for F/A-18 aircraft of the Royal Australian Air Force.

Raytheon of Waltham, Mass., has 73,000 employees and had annual sales of $20.3 billion in 2006. The company ranks Lockheed Martin of Bethesda, Md., has 140,000 employees and had annual sales of $40 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
