10th September 2020 - 16:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon has been awarded a contract worth up to $125 million to improve the AIM-120 AMRAAM system.

The deal, awarded by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center  and announced by the DoD on 9 September, includes the delivery of software updates to the AMRAAM inventory.

An initial $1.19 million task order was awarded concurrently with the basic contract.

Software development activities are expected to use a recognised agile framework, consisting of government/prime contractor collaboration ‘through repeatable increments of study, development, integration, test and capability demonstration’, the DoD noted.

Work will be performed in Tucson, Arizona, and is expected to be completed by 30 September 2026.
