Raytheon has received a contract modification from the US Air Force Life Cycle Management Center for the Paveway family of weapons.

The $386 million modification covers a total package approach for Paveway-specific activities including studies, production, certification, integration and sustainment.

The work involves foreign military sales to countries with active cases to acquire Paveway weapon systems, or have expressed interest in the Paveway family of weapons. 

Raytheon’s Paveway laser-guided bomb converts ‘dumb’ bombs into precision-guided munitions. Newer versions of Paveway bombs include GPS/INS guidance capabilities, combining the accuracy and flexibility of traditional laser-guided weapons with the all-weather capability of GPS guidance.
