NATIONAL HARBOR, MARYLAND (BNS): The US Navy awarded Raytheon Company a $106.4 million modification to a previously awarded contract for the production of Aegis-related equipment, including the AN/SPY-1(D)V radar transmitter and MK99 Mod 14 Fire Control System.

With this modification, Raytheon will continue its long history of reliable manufacturing of these two essential components, which are critical to Aegis' air and missile defence capabilities.

"Raytheon has partnered with the Navy for more than three decades on Aegis, and we look forward to supporting the next stage of the programme," Denis Donohue, director of Above Water Sensors for Raytheon's Integrated Defence Systems business, was quoted as saying in the company statement.

The work will support DDG 116, the next planned ship of the Arleigh Burke-class of destroyers, as well as the Aegis Ashore missile defence system.

Raytheon's AN/SPY-1 radar transmitters and MK99 Fire Control System, both key elements of the Aegis system, have been in production for more than 30 years as part of the US Navy's Aegis shipbuilding programme.
