TEWKSBURY, MASSACHUSETTS (BNS): Raytheon Company has been awarded a contract worth over $2.0 billion to deliver the combat-proven Patriot Air and Missile Defence System to an undisclosed international customer.

The contract, awarded on April 2, 2015 and booked in the second quarter as a direct commercial sale, includes fully digitized new-production Patriot fire units with the latest technology for improved threat detection, identification and engagement. The contract also includes a full training package and support equipment, Raytheon said.

"In the past five months Qatar, Korea and now this international partner have all chosen Raytheon's Global Patriot solution because they have confidence in the world's most advanced air and missile defence system," said Daniel J. Crowley, president of Raytheon Integrated Defence Systems. "Including this most recent contract, Raytheon has booked more than $5 billion in international Patriot orders since late December 2014."
