Raytheon gets $60M for RAM production

The U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded Raytheon Missile Systems a $60.1 million modification for the U.S. Navy’s Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) Block 2 guided missile round pack requirements.

The contract has options which could bring its value to $142,8 million. It will see BAE Systems procure material, fabricate parts, assemble and test, and deliver RAM Block 2 MK 44 Mod 4 guided missile round packs.

The RAM guided missile weapon system is co-developed and co-produced under an international cooperative program between the U.S. and Federal Republic of Germany.

The missile system provides anti-ship missile defense for multiple ship platforms. The RAM is fully operational in the U.S. and German navies with over 3400 missiles and 180 launchers deployed on more than 100 ships ranging from fast patrol boats to aircraft carriers.

It is also being installed on a majority of new USN ship classes (LHA6, CVN 78 and LCS).
