Two Top 100 companies to support Air Force radio program

Raytheon and Northrop Grumman have won contracts to support the Air Force’s Affordable Radio Frequency Multifunction Sensors (ARMS) program.

Raytheon’s contract is worth $7 million. Northrop Grumman’s contract is worth $3.8 million.

The ARMS program focuses on developing new manufacturing processes to enable an increase in reliability and a decrease in cycle time and costs for Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) sensors.

The two companies will work on addressing key manufacturing issues while decreasing the program risk and increasing the manufacturing readiness level, the Defense Department said.

Work will be performed in El Segundo, California, and is expected to be completed by March 4, 2016. 

Seven companies bid on this contract.
