Raytheon Gets CVN 78 Dual Band Radar Contract Modification

Raytheon Co., Integrated Defense Systems located in Tewksbury, Mass., has received a USD 23.7 million contract modification for the execution of Phase II CVN 78 Dual Band Radar Test and Evaluation engineering support at the Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems Software Development Laboratory and Wallops Island Engineering Test Center Land Based Test Site. 

The Dual Band Radar (DBR) is the first radar system in the US Navy fleet capable of simultaneously operating over two frequency ranges (S-band and X-band), coordinated by a single resource manager.

The DBR combines functionality of the X-band AN/SPY-3 Multifunction Radar and the S-band Volume Surveillance Radar (VSR) to provide an unprecedented level of performance and capability to detect and track hostile targets.

The work, to be performed in Sudbury, Mass, is expected to be completed by November 2014.

Raytheon Company, with 2012 sales of $24 billion and 68,000 employees worldwide, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, security and civil markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 91 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems; as well as a broad range of mission support services.
