Raytheon Co. was awarded a $128 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract for mobile sensors by the U.S. Air Force.
Under the terms of the contract, Raytheon will operate and maintain the Cobra King radar aboard the U.S. Naval Ship Howard O. Lorenzen (TAGM-25) and the Gray Star radar aboard the USNS Invincible (TAGM-24).
The two shipboard radars are forward-deployed supporting U.S. Pacific Command and U.S. Central Command. Raytheon personnel will deploy aboard the ships to operate and maintain the radar and subsystems, as well as provide engineering and logistics support.
“Raytheon is sustaining and modernizing the advanced sensor systems the Air Force depends on to succeed on today’s digital battlefield,” says Todd Probert, vice president of Mission Support and Modernization at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Service. “We will keep Cobra King and Gray Star available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, no matter where they are in the world.”
