Raytheon Company received a $97.3 million contract modification for production and support of the U.S. Navy's Air and Missile Defense Radar (ADMR) systems, the Defense Department announced. The contract calls for performance of the integration of, and production support for, continued combat system integration and test, engineering, training, software, and depot maintenance of the Navy's AN/SPY-6(V) air and missile defense radar.
