Raytheon keeps working on Navy amphibious transport ships

Work will support wide area network, data and information management requirements

Raytheon Co. will furnish engineering and related support services for the Navy’s next-generation amphibious warfare ships under a contract worth $197 million over five years.

Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will furnish engineering services for a variety of systems and concepts on the LPD 17 class of ships, including the shipboard wide area network, integrated product data, information management and integrated electronics architecture, company officials said today.

Raytheon, which also is the ship electronics systems integrator for the program, won a prime contract in 2005 to provide life-cycle engineering and support for the LPD 17. The new contract extends the original agreement, the officials said.

The new LPD-17 ships are 25,000-ton amphibious vessels designed to transport and land up to 800 Marines, their equipment and supplies by using landing craft, amphibious vehicles and helicopters.

The work will be performed at various contractor and government facilities, including the Expeditionary Warfare Center in San Diego, Calif., and the Seapower Capability Center in Portsmouth, R.I.

Raytheon ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
