Romania Inks Agreement for Raytheon Missile Defense System Procurement - top government contractors - best government contracting eventRomania’s government has signed a letter of offer and acceptance agreement to buy a Raytheon-built integrated air and missile defense system from the U.S. Army.

Raytheon said Wednesday the LOA agreement for the Patriot system lays the groundwork for contract negotiations between the U.S. government and the company in an effort to help Romania adopt the missile defense technology.

The State Department cleared the Romania’s request to purchase Patriot air defense systems along with support services and equipment in July under a potential $3.9 billion foreign military sales deal.

Tom Laliberty, vice president of Raytheon’s integrated air and missile defense business, said the Patriot system will work to help Romanian air defenders train, exercise and perform collaborative activities with U.S. and European counterparts.

Laliberty added the deal also seeks to open job opportunities in the U.S. and Romania.

The U.S. and 12 other countries use Patriot to help defend armed forces and citizens against aircraft, drones, ballistic and cruise missile threats. according to Raytheon.
