Raytheon details Qatar orders

12th July 2019 - 17:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon has released details of the recent announcement that Qatar is to acquire the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) and Patriot system.

The company has been awarded two direct commercial sales contracts worth approximately $2.2 billion for NASAMS, final certification of the AMRAAM-Extended Range missile, and an unspecified quantity of additional Patriot fire units.

The deal makes Qatar the first country to procure AMRAAM-ER, the surface-to-air extended-range variant of the combat-proven AMRAAM air-to-air-missile.

Ralph Acaba, president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, said: ‘Raytheon's integrated air and missile defence capabilities provide a combat-proven, layered approach that protects citizens, militaries and infrastructure from a broad spectrum of threats.’
