Raytheon Completes First of 6 Patriot Radar Modernizations for Kuwait - top government contractors - best government contracting eventTo fulfill the terms of a contract with the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, Raytheon has completed the first of six radar modernizations for Kuwait.

The program calls for Raytheon, the prime contractor for the project, to upgrade Patriot radars to Configuration-3, according to the company release.

“These upgrades to the latest Patriot Configuration will boost Kuwait’s capability to defend itself against tactical ballistic missile attacks,” said Sanjay Kapoor, vice president for integrated air and missile defense at Raytheon’s integrated defense systems business.

The company also reports that 12 nations have chosen the weapon system, including Taiwan. Kapoor said the deal “highlights the continuing efforts by Kuwait Air Defense to maintain Patriot readiness and effectiveness to counter evolving regional threats.”

The company said the contract work is taking place at Raytheon’s integrated air defense center in Andover, Mass.
