4th January 2019 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon received a contract from the US Army in December to produce Patriot Integrated Air and Missile Defense Systems for Sweden.  

The $692.9 million contract also includes spare parts, support and training. Previously announced by the US Department of Defense, the contract calls for Raytheon to build and deliver an undisclosed quantity of Patriot fire units and GEM-T interceptor missiles.

The Patriot missile defence system consist of radars, C2 technology and multiple types of interceptors, all working together to detect, identify and defeat tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, UAS, advanced aircraft and other threats.

Tom Laliberty, VP of integrated air and missile defense at Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business, said: ‘Sweden's Patriot procurement will provide joint training opportunities for the Swedish and US armed forces, and enhance military interoperability. Patriot is continually modernised, providing Sweden the world's most advanced and capable air and missile defence system.’
