Raytheon gets go ahead for Germany Patriot upgrade
Raytheon will upgrade Germany's Patriot Integrated Air and Missile Defense System under a $105.5 million direct commercial sales contract from the NATO Support and Procurement Agency, the company announced on 29 July.
The work will see Germany’s Patriot systems upgraded to the most current configuration available, ensuring that Germany's air and missile defence remains current until at least 2035.
The contract comes shortly after the Defense and Budget Committees of the German Federal Parliament approved the upgrade, ensuring Germany remains aligned with five other EU and NATO allies that rely on Patriot for their air and missile defence.
