Raytheon receives order for US Navy satcom terminals

Raytheon has received its first production order for US Navy Multiband Terminal satellite communication terminals.

The $37.6m (£23.5m) award follows a successful field test and ’Milestone C Review’, which marks the completion of complex system development.

The initial production award is for 22 systems, consisting of 15 ship, five submarine and two shore terminals, along with other services and products.

With the procurement of terminals during a five-year production period, the programme’s value of system development and production could potentially reach $1bn.
