Raytheon awarded AMRAAM support work
Raytheon has been awarded a contract modification to deliver support services for the US Air Force's Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM).
Worth $8.4 million, it will cover development test mission support including test planning, test operations, test reporting and telemetry analysis, and takes the total value of the contract to $46.8 million.
This is the third option that is being exercised within the broader contract, and covers 12 months of services for ground tests, captive flight tests, and live fire tests conducted for developmental purposes up to and including operational test readiness reviews.
It also includes management and maintenance of AMRAAM separation test vehicles and other assets used for the test programmes.
Work will be performed at Eglin AFB in Florida, and is expected to be completed by 5 September 2020.
