Raytheonâ€™s space and airborne systems unit has received a $63.5M contract modification from the U.S. Navy to manufacture terminals intended for maritime military satellite communications.
The branch exercised an option under aÂ previously awarded, firm-fixed-price contract for the production, test and delivery ofÂ Navy Multiband Terminals, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
NMTs are designed to transmitÂ and protect widebandÂ communications via satellite connectivity using super andÂ extremely high frequencies.
The Naval Warfare Systems Command will obligate the full amount of the modification from fiscal 2020 Navy other procurement, shipbuilding and conversion funds as well as U.S. Air Force research, development, test and evaluation funds.
Work is scheduled to take place in Florida and Massachusetts through May 2022.
The modification continues Raytheonâ€™s work on a $466.6M contractÂ the company received in December 2015.
