Raytheon wins $104M contract to modernize Global Hawk ground segment

Raytheon has won a $104 million contract to modernize the ground segment for the U.S. Air Force RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle.

The company is partnering with Northrop Grumman to complete the work under the contract; Northrop Grumman builds the Global Hawk and Raytheon provides modernized ground controls, the company said in a release.

The modernized mission control stations will use an open architecture to give the Air Force flexibility for adding different mission payloads and new platforms.

Work will be performed at Beale Air Force Base and Grand Forks Air Force Base.
