Raytheon has won a $38.3 million option to provide design agent and engineering services in support of the Navy’s Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC)
CEC is a sensor netting system that improves anti-air warfare capability by extracting and distributing sensor-derived information such that the superset of this data is available to all participating CEC units, the Defense Department said in a release.
It improves battle force effectiveness by improving overall situational awareness and by enabling longer range, cooperative, multiple or layered engagement strategies.
This contract includes foreign military sales to Australia.
All work is expected to wrap up in September 2015.
