General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems has won a $250.1 million contract from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems to provide engineering and manufacturing development services to the Navy in support of its next-generation integrated Air and Missile Defense Radar.
The Navy’s Air and Missile Defense Radar is a next-generation integrated air and missile defense radar and is being designed for Flight III Arleigh Burke-class (DDG 51) destroyers beginning in 2016, General Dynamics said in a release.
The original contract was awarded to Raytheon in October 2013.
Under the subcontract, General Dynamics will support Raytheon as they build, integrate and test an open, highly scalable and energy efficient advanced radar system to detect ballistic missiles and air and surface targets.
