Raytheon wins $35M option to support missile weapon system

Raytheon has won a $35 million option from the Navy to continue to provide design agent engineering services for the MK-31 Rolling Airframe Missile Guided Missile Weapon System.

The weapon system is part of a cooperative development and production program conducted jointly by the United States and Germany, the Defense Department said in a release.

Under the contract, Raytheon will provide program support, guided-missile round pack support and guided missile launching system support.

The RAM missiles are surface to air weapons used to defend against attack, particularly by anti-ship cruise missiles.

This support will help maintain current weapon system capability, and will resolve issues through design, systems, software, maintenance, reliability, maintainability, quality assurance and logistics engineering services, the Defense Department said.

Work will be completed in Tucson, Ariz., and is expected to be completed by September 2014.

Funding in the amount of $8.2 million is obligated at the time of the award, and will expire at the end of fiscal 2014.
