Raytheon nabs $770M contract to upgrade Patriot system in Korea

Raytheon has won a $769.4 million direct commercial sale contract to upgrade a number of Patriot Air and Missile Defense Systems for the Republic of Korea.

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

As of December 2014, Raytheon has 13 Patriot customers after adding Qatar to the list that month.

Raytheon will deliver three upgrades to Korea’s current Patriot system, the company said in a release.

First, an open architecture will ensure that the system can operate on a variety of networks. Second, the Modern Man Station interface will feature touch screen technology. Third, the Radar Digital Processor will improve target detection and identification and enhance surveillance, Raytheon said.
