U.S. defense contractor Raytheon Co. said on Thursday it had got a $402,6 million order for SPY-6 radars for the U.S. Navy.


The aerospace giant reported the company is awarded a$402,658,015fixed-price-incentive (firm target) modification to previously-awarded contract N00024-14-C-5315 to exercise options for Air and Missile Defense Radar Program (AMDR) low-rate initial production (LRIP).

This modification will provide for three AMDR LRIP units. The LRIP units will be deployed on DDG 51 Flight III-class ships. Work will be performed inMarlborough, Massachusetts, and is expected to be completed byMarch 2023. Fiscal 2019 shipbuilding and conversion (Navy) funding in the amount of$402,658,015will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

SPY-6 is the U.S. Navy’s next generation integrated air and missile defense radar. Currently in production, and on track for the DDG-51 Flight III destroyer, SPY-6 provides the Navy with unmatched protection against air, surface, and ballistic missile threats.

The radar is built with individual ‘building blocks’ called Radar Modular Assemblies. Each RMA is a self-contained radar in a 2’x2’x2’ box. These RMAs can stack together to form any size array to fit the mission requirements of any ship. This technology makes SPY-6 the Navy’s first truly scalable radar.
