Raytheon to modify F-15 weapons' frequencies

Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC, a subsidiary of Raytheon Co., will modify the data link frequency equipment in F-15 fighter aircraft under a $75 million indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity contract from the Air Force.

The contract award includes an initial delivery order worth $31.8 million.

Under the IDIQ contract, Raytheon will modify the F-15 weapons data link's frequencies to meet the Commercial Spectrum Enhancement Act, which reallocates spectrum from government users such as the Defense Department, to commercial users, including Third Generation wireless service providers. 3G is intended to provide broadband Internet access for portable devices.

RTSC will do the modifications in its Indianapolis facility.

The contracting activity for the Air Force Training Frequency Relocation program is based at Hill Air Force Base, Ogden, Utah.

Raytheon of Waltham, Mass., ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
