RaytheonLogoRaytheon is providing the U.S. Navy fire control systems and radar transmitters for the branch’s Aegis weapon system, the company said Tuesday.

The company is observing the 40th year of its partnership with the Navy on the Aegis program, including 32 years as part of the Aegis shipbuilding program.

The AN/SPY-1 radar and MK99 are designed for search, track and missile guidance functions on Aegis.

Both the U.S. military and allies use the systems for maritime integrated air and missile defense missions, said Kevin Peppe, vice president of seapower capability systems at Raytheon.

Raytheon said 108 ships, including 17 international, have the fire control and radar systems, with 140 of the radars delivered and 348 of the fire control systems delivered to date.

Japan has acquired the equipment for its Kongo-class destroyers, Spain uses the equipment for F-100-class frigates and South Korea has purchased the equipment for the KDX-111 King Sejong the Great-class destroyers.
