July 22 (UPI) -- Raytheon Co. was awarded a $27.3 million contract for work on the U.S. Navy's Air and Missile Defense Radar program, the Defense Department announced.
The award settles a request for equitable adjustment for contractor provision after a government change order by the AMDR program's Pacific Missile Range Facility, the Pentagon said Friday.
While the contract was just awarded, the work it covers was completed in June 2018.
Under the deal, Raytheon completed work on site generators and associated support hardware, as well as engineering and modification development, and options for the purchase of up to nine AMDR shipsets.
The radar is made up of individual building blocks called radar modular assemblies, each a self-contained radar occupying eight square feet. These RMAs can stack together to form any size array to fit the mission requirements of any ship, Raytheon said.
