Raytheon awarded $655-million contract for Patriot
Raytheon Company has received a $655-million contract for new-production fire units of the combat-proven Patriot Air and Missile Defense System for Kuwait. These units are an addition to the Patriot fire units Kuwait currently owns to counter current and evolving threats.
Awarded by the US Army Aviation and Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, as a foreign military sale agreement, the contract includes new Patriot fire units with increased computing power and radar processing efficiency, improved man-machine interface and reduced life-cycle costs.
Work under this contract will be performed at Raytheon’s Integrated Air Defense Center, Andover, Massachusetts, supported by a global team of Patriot system suppliers.
