US Army orders $9m in Boomerang components
Raytheon BBN Technologies received a $9 million order to deliver additional Boomerang shooter detection system components to the US Army. BBN is a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company.
Included in the contract award, Raytheon BBN will deliver spare parts for Boomerang III systems, such as easily field-replaceable microphones.
Mark Sherman, general manager of Boomerang for Raytheon BBN Technologies, said, "Raytheon BBN has designed these acoustic shooter detection systems to be inexpensive enough that every soldier can benefit from this life-saving technology. With sales to the US Army and the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence, there are now over 10,000 Boomerang systems deployed, helping to protect troops in Iraq and Afghanistan."
