WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Raytheon Missile Systems has received a $24 million contract for radio and antenna work on the U.S. Navy's Tomahawk missile.

The cost-plus-fixed fee delivery order against a previously issued basic ordering agreement calls for the design, development and integration of a government furnished integrated single box solution radio and upgraded antennas into the Tactical Tomahawk Block IV All-Up-Round missile.

It also covers integration of the integrated single box solution into the Tactical Tomahawk guidance test set.

The deal will also encompass continued engineering support for navigation system upgrades.

Work will be performed in Arizona and Colorado with an estimated completion date of January 2018.

Naval Air Systems Command is the contracting activity.

The Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile can circle for hours, shift course instantly on command and beam a picture of targets to controllers halfway around the globe before hitting with pinpoint accuracy, Raytheon said.

It can be launched from a ship or submarine and can fly into heavily defended airspace more than 1,000 miles away.
