Raytheon‘s integrated defense systems business has received a potential $98.8M contract to help the U.S. Navy engineer a radar system designed to operate over two frequency ranges simultaneously.
Services will encompass “upgrades or redesigns, engineering change proposals, product support, test equipment procurement, installation integration support, combat system integration testing, program management support, studies and analysis” for the Dual Band Radar platform, the US Department of Defense said Friday.
The cost-plus-fixed fee contract has a $38.1M base value and will reach its maximum value if the Navy exercises all options.
Seventy percent of the work will occur in Tewksbury, Mass., and the remaining 30 percent will take place in Andover, Mass., Moorestown, N.J., and Arvonia, Va.
The US Navy will initially obligate $2.5M in fiscal 2019 shipbuilding, conversion, research, development, test and evaluation funds.
The Dual Band Radar (DBR) is the first radar system in the U.S. Navy fleet capable of simultaneously operating over two frequency ranges (S-band and X-band), coordinated by a single resource manager. It combines the 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.
