Raytheon wins radar maintenance, operations services contract

25th April 2011 - 09:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC (RTSC), a subsidiary of Raytheon Company, has won a US Air Force Cobra Dane radar systems contract valued up to $65 million for maintenance operations, radar sustainment, systems engineering and integrated logistics support.

The Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency contract began April 1 and ends Dec. 31, 2015, if all options are exercised.

"The Cobra Dane radar system is a key platform supporting the Air Force and Missile Defense Agency, and Raytheon's operational support and sustainment engineering have been instrumental in meeting the customer's missions," said John Harris, RTSC president.

"Cobra Dane was introduced in 1977, and the upgraded hardware and software, which we support, have extended the system's operational life by more than 15 years," Harris added.

The AN/FPS-108 Cobra Dane was originally built by Raytheon and modernized by Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.
