Raytheon’s space and airborne systems division has secured an $80.3 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide systems engineering, software development and systems integrity services for the F/A-18A-D and E/F aircraft fleet of the U.S. Navy and various foreign nations.
In addition to updating the Navy’s operational flight program, user data file and UDF generator, Raytheon will also develop firmware and tools that support the ALR-67(V)3 Radar Warning Receiver and ALE-50B Integrated Multi-Platform Launch Controller systems on the aircraft, the Defense Department said Thursday.
The contract also covers services for F/A-18 deployed with the governments of Australia, Canada, Kuwait and Switzerland.
Raytheon will perform majority of the systems engineering work in Point Mugu, Calif., and the rest in Clifton, N.J.; China Lake and Goleta, Calif.; St. Louis; Lexington Park, Md.; Nashua, N.H.; Interlaken, Switzerland; and Adelaide, Australia.
The Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division provided $7.2 million at the time of award from its fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance funds, all of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
DoD said the contract runs through June 2023.
