New Raytheon Stan­dard Mis­sile fac­tory al­most ready


Raytheon Com­pany’s all-up-round Stan­dard Mis­sile pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity in Huntsville, Alabama, is near­ing com­ple­tion. The state-of-the-art fac­tory, lo­cated on the US Army’s Red­stone Ar­se­nal, should be com­pleted be­fore the end of the year. Once op­er­a­tional, the 70,000-square-foot fa­cil­ity will as­sem­ble and test Stan­dard Mis­sile-3 and SM-6 in­ter­cep­tors.

“This fac­tory will be an as­set to our na­tion and the men and women de­fend­ing free­dom around the world,” said Dr Tay­lor W. Lawrence, Raytheon Mis­sile Sys­tems Pres­i­dent. “SM-3 and SM-6 are im­por­tant parts of the na­tion’s ad­vanced mis­sile de­fence ca­pa­bil­ity; the new fac­tory will play a crit­i­cal role in pro­vid­ing a mis­sile de­fence shield to the na­tion and our al­lies in Europe.”
