Raytheon has been awarded a $72.8 million US Navy contract for the advanced procurement of radar equipment for the Royal Australian Navy’s Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD). Under the contract, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) will provide system transmitters, associated hardware and spares for AN/SPY-1D(V) radar for the first three Australian ships.



IDS’ SPY-1 radar transmitters and MK99 Fire Control Systems are already on board the US Navy’s fleet of cruisers and destroyers and are in service on board Japanese Kongo-class destroyers and Spanish F-100-class frigates.



Work will be performed at IDS’ Surveillance and SensorsCenter in Sudbury, Massachusetts, the IntegratedAirDefenseCenter in Andover, Massachusetts, and the MaritimeMissionCenter in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.



Integrated Defense Systems is Raytheon’s Joint Battlespace Integration division, providing integrated solutions to an international customer base, including the US Missile Defense Agency and the US armed forces.
