Raytheon receives DDG 1000 contract modification
Raytheon has received a modification to a previously-awarded contract for support for the US Navy’s Guided Missile Destroyer (DDG) 1000 class vessels.
The $121.5 million modification covers integrated logistics support and engineering services for the DDG 1000 class multi-mission surface combatants.
DDG 1000 combat systems provide offensive, distributed and precision firepower in support of forces ashore while incorporating signature reduction, active and passive self-defence systems and enhanced survivability features.
Work will be complete by January 2021.
