GOLETA, Calif. 3, Mar. 2012. Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has been awarded a $48.7 million cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to support further software development of the ALR-67(V) 3 radar warning receiver. The contract was awarded by the Naval Air Systems Command, Weapons Divison, China Lake, Calif. This contract combines purchases for the U.S Navy and, under the Foreign Military Sales Program, the governments of Australia, Kuwait, Qatar, Malaysia, Switzerland, Canada and other future foreign military sales customers.
The AN/ALR-67(V)3 is the digital countermeasures receiving set now serving as the “System of Record” U.S. Navy radar warning receiver (RWR) on front-line, carrier-based F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet tactical aircraft.
-- Raytheon tests new propulsion system for TOW missile
-- Raytheon delivers its first international maritime surveillance radar to Boeing
-- Raytheon's JLENS completes Demonstration Test One.
The system, which is used to detect, identify and display radars and radar-guided weaponry, features a channelized receiver architecture that allows detection of emitters in high pulse density, as well as interception of distant signals despite interference from nearby transmitters.
The AN/ALR-67(V)3 is fully integrated with all avionics equipment on the F/A-18 A/B/C/D Hornets, as well as that on the F/A-18E/F Super Hornets.
Work for this contract will take place in Point Mugu, Calif., and is expected to be completed in February 2017.
