Raytheon to Continue MDA Ballistic Missile Defense Program Support

Share

Tucson-based Raytheon Missile Systems has been awarded a $66.4 million contract add-on for testing of a land-based version of its Standard Missile-3 Block IIA ballistic-missile interceptor, according to Pentagon contract notice.

Under the contract, Raytheon will continue efforts for engineering services, analysis, and material in support of the SM-3 Block IIA program efforts, including engineering, integration, certification and test efforts and post events assessment support; the Defense Department explained.

DoD noted the modification increases the contract's cumulative face value to $2.07 billion.

Work will occur at Raytheon's facility in Tucson, Arizona, through September 30, 2018.

The SM-3 Block IIA ballistic defense missile is a land-based transfer of the existing Aegis BMD naval system deployed by the USA and Japan. It is created to intercept short and intermediate-range ballistic missiles with an attendant anti-satellite capability, as demonstrated in the destruction of a failing USA spy satellite in 2008.

A SM-3 Block IIA hit its mark in an intercept test in February.
