USN and FMS customers will benefit from ESSM Block 1 and Block 2 support.

Raytheon is providing more Evolved SeaSparrow Missile (ESSM) Block 2 parts and ESSM Block 1 test equipment for the USN and FMS customers, the DoD announced on 13 May.

‘This is a sole-source contract action pursuant to an international agreement,’ the DoD added.

The latest $9.38 million deal brings the cumulative value of the contract from Naval Sea Systems Command to $17.19 million.

The order combines purchases for the Navy (64%); international consortium nation navies (34%); and the government of Japan (2%) under the FMS programme.

Work will be performed in El Segundo, California (62%); and Tucson, Arizona (38%), and is expected to be completed by September 2022.
