3rd January 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon will modernise the Patriot Integrated Air and Missile Defense System of an unnamed partner nation under a direct commercial sales contract worth over $600 million.

Under the contract Raytheon will upgrade the country’s Patriot system to the most advanced configuration, Configuration 3+ with the Post Deployment Build (PDB) eight software and hardware suite. The configuration enables the use of the PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement interceptor and enhances its ability to destroy tactical ballistic missiles.

Ralph Acaba, vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense, Raytheon, said: ‘Patriot saves lives and our customer faces a very real, evolving threat; by upgrading Patriot, they will continue to protect their civilians, military and critical infrastructure.’
