The Defense Department said Thursday the company will supply Advanced Technology Receiver Cards that work to simultaneously track patented direct measurement processing; ultra-tight global positioning system and inertial navigation system coupling; and fast satellite acquisition efforts.

DoD said the firm-fixed-price contract includes a foreign military sale to Saudi Arabia.

The Pentagon expects Raytheon to finish work by Dec. 31, 2020.
