Raytheon begins Patriot enhancements

14th February 2017 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon will enhance the Patriot Air and Missile Defense System under a contract issued by the US Army Contracting Command, the company announced on 13 February.

The contract has been funded by the 13 Patriot partner nations.

The improvements will make the Patriot system more capable and improve high readiness levels.

Ralph Acaba, vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense at Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business, said: 'This contract will deliver critical capability to the warfighter while also employing highly skilled Americans. The members of the Patriot partnership share the cost of engineering services, which could be prohibitively expensive for a single nation.'
