Raytheon received a $25.9 million U.S. Navy contract for Tomahawk missile Composite Capsule Launching Systems (C/CLS). Production and delivery of the systems will support submarine-launched Tomahawk Cruise missiles.

"Submarine and surface-launched Tomahawk missiles have been employed in more than 2,000 combat missions worldwide," said Roy Donelson, Raytheon Tomahawk senior program director. "Raytheon and the U.S. Navy are working together to give this proven missile even greater capability."

The new launching systems will be integrated into nuclear powered fast attack submarines and nuclear powered guided missile subs. The C/CLS provides for all mechanical and environmental interfaces between the missile and the submarine missile tube. Deliveries will begin in September 2015.

With a range of more than 1,000 miles the Tomahawk Block IV missile is a surface and submarine-launched precision strike stand-off weapon. Tomahawk is designed for long-range precision strike missions against high-value and heavily defended targets. Raytheon and the U.S. Navy are working to provide Tomahawk with even greater capability.
