Raytheon has won a $104 million contract with the Naval Supply Systems Command to provide operations and maintenance in support of the Relocatable Over-the-Horizon Radar (ROTHR) program.
The ROTHR is a long-range surveillance radar used by the U.S. government in counter narco-terrorism operations, the company said in a release. Each radar provides more than 2.5 million square miles of coverage area.
Raytheon designed and built ROTHR and under the contract will provide operations support, modernization and maintenance of the radar system.
