Raytheon has won a $2.4 billion contract to produce five Patriot Air and Missile Defense System units for use by Qatar.

The Patriot is a surface-to-air missile system used by the United States and several allies including Egypt, Germany, Taiwan, Greece and Israel.

Qatar is a new Patriot customer for Raytheon, the company said in a release, bringing its total number of Patriot customers to 13.

The contract will provide Patriot fire units featuring increased computing power and radar processing efficiency, improved man-machine interface and reduced life-cycle costs.

Work will be performed in Andover, Mass., El Paso, Texas, and Huntsville, Ala.
