Navy Multiband Terminal production continues with new order
Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems is to produce an undisclosed number of additional units under the Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT) SATCOM programme, the DoD announced on 26 January.
Work on a $19.95 million contract modification from Naval Information Warfare Systems Command is expected to be completed in May 2022. The modification brings the total cumulative value of the NMT programme to $557.88 million.
NMT is a multiband-capable SATCOM terminal that provides protected and wideband communications for the USN. The terminal integrates EHF and AEHF systems with two-way Ka and X-band communications and the Global Broadcast Service.
It is also compatible with Wideband Global Satellite Communications and is interoperable with air force and army systems, Raytheon added
Raytheon has been involved in NMT since 2003 when it was awarded the prototype development contract by the USN.
