25th February 2020 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon confirmed on 25 February that $314 million has been invested to modernise the Patriot air and missile defence system by all partner states.

The contract was agreed by the US Army on 30 January. It is the third annual indefinite delivery task order. The total contract ceiling is more than $2.3 billion.

Under the task order, Raytheon will provide engineering services such as software development, integration tests and configuration management.

Tom Laliberty, VP of Integrated Air and Missile Defence at Raytheon’s Integrated Defence Systems, said: ‘The 17-nation Patriot partnership shares the cost and reaps the benefit of continued investment in the system.’

As well as the US, the Patriot system is used by Bahrain, Germany, Greece, Israel, Japan, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan and the UAE.
