 TEWKSBURY, Mass. --- Raytheon Company has been awarded a $29.7 million contract to provide 10 AN/AQS-22 Airborne Low Frequency Sonar (ALFS) systems for the U.S. Navy's MH60R multi- mission helicopter.  
 
ALFS is the primary undersea warfare sensor for the MH60R, providing mission critical capabilities, including submarine detection, tracking, localization, classification, acoustic intercept, underwater communication and environmental data collection.  
 
"The advanced technology of ALFS provides the U.S. Navy with the features and capabilities needed to identify and counter undersea threats within the multi-mission environment," said Dan Smith, president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. "Award of this contract demonstrates our customer's confidence in the capabilities that we provide to support the needs and requirements of the undersea warfare mission."  
 
Under the contract, Raytheon will provide program management, systems engineering, configuration management, and materials procurement for the manufacture, test and integration of the sonar systems, as well as sustaining and integrated logistics support. This contract follows the completion of an earlier low rate initial production contract under which Raytheon produced and delivered four ALFS systems well ahead of schedule.  
 
Work will be performed at Raytheon's Naval Integration Center in Portsmouth, R.I.  
 
Based in Tewksbury, Mass., Integrated Defense Systems is Raytheon's leader in mission systems integration. With a strong international and domestic customer base, including the U.S. armed forces and U.S. Missile Defense Agency, IDS provides integrated capability solutions to the air, surface, and subsurface battlespace.

Raytheon Receives $112 Million Contract to Modify Three Destroyers  
 
 
(Source: Raytheon Co.; issued Jan. 27, 2005)
 
 
 TEWKSBURY, Mass. --- Raytheon Company has been awarded a contract modification valued at $112.5 million to provide three ship sets of Aegis Weapon System to the U.S. Navy. This equipment will be installed on the Arleigh Burke class destroyers, DDG110, DDG111 and DDG112.  
 
This was the third and final option included in the contract, originally awarded in December 2001. As a result of this contract modification, the total amount obligated by the U.S. Navy to this contract increases to $612.4 million.  
 
Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) will provide one ship set of hardware for each DDG, consisting of a SPY-1D(V) transmitter, three FCS Mk99 transmitters and shipboard spares. Work will be performed in Sudbury and Andover, Mass., and in Portsmouth, R.I. Aegis production will continue at Raytheon through June 2008.  
 
"With more than 25 years of Aegis experience, Raytheon is proud to build and support these systems. The Arleigh Burke Class destroyers are 'built to fight,' and this equipment stands up to that legacy with no doubt," said Dan Martin, IDS vice president of Surveillance and Sensor Systems. "I would like to salute our workers from both the IBEW and the IAM for their committed support to Raytheon, the U.S. Navy and the Aegis Program."  
 
Raytheon has been providing the Aegis equipment since 1978. To date, for the U.S. Navy, 27 transmitter sets have been shipped for the CG47 Ticonderoga Class cruisers and 53 transmitter sets have been shipped for the DDG-51 Arleigh Burke Class destroyers. Additionally five sets of transmitters have been shipped for the Japanese Kongo Class and four sets for Spanish F100 class. Backlog includes Aegis transmitters for U.S. Navy, Japan and Korea.  
 
The SPY-1D(V) transmitter is an S-Band multifunction phased array shipboard radar used to acquire and track multiple targets in littoral environments  
 
The Mk99 FCS is an X-Band Continuous Wave Illuminator used to provide uplink and rear reference to the Standard and Extended Seasparrow Missiles This contract modification was originally announced by the Department of Defense on Jan. 21, 2005

Raytheon's CLAWS Scores Direct Hit, Marking the End of Development Testing  
 
 
(Source: Raytheon Co.; issued Jan. 27, 2005)
 
 
 TEWKSBURY, Mass. --- Raytheon Company's Complementary Low Altitude Weapon System (CLAWS) completed a series of guided missile flight tests with a resounding direct hit, annihilating the surrogate cruise missile target.  
 
Flight tests were conducted at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., supported by elements of the 3rd LAAD (3rd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion) and MACS 23 and 1 (Marine Air Control Squadrons 23 and 1). The completion of these flight tests marks the end of development testing.  
 
This test demonstrated the complete "Family of Systems" architecture. The large volume air picture was provided by the TPS-59 radar and AN/TYQ-23 Tactical Air Operations Module. Close air picture and tracking data were provided by the Thales Raytheon Systems MPQ-64 Sentinel Radar. Command and control, with air picture and track correlation, was performed by the Marine Air Defense Communications Platform updated with the Raytheon Solipsys Multi-Source Correlator Tracker and Tactical Display Framework. Fire control and launch were by the CLAWS launcher. Intercept was by the Raytheon Missile Systems AIM-120 AMRAAM.  
 
"This test truly demonstrated Raytheon's maturity as a Mission Systems Integrator. In this case, we integrated fielded equipment with minimal development items to rapidly provide the warfighter a much needed capability," said Dan Smith, president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.  
 
CLAWS is an all-weather, highly mobile, high firepower air defense system for the Marine Expeditionary Forces. The system uses the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle as its platform and the AIM-120 AMRAAM as its interceptor. CLAWS is block fielded as the Marine variant to the Ground Launched AMRAAM common launcher program.  
 
Based in Tewksbury, Mass., Integrated Defense Systems is Raytheon's leader in mission systems integration. With a strong international and domestic customer base, including the U.S. Missile Defense Agency and the U.S. Armed Forces, Integrated Defense Systems provides integrated air and missile defense and naval and maritime warfighting solutions.
