The US Air Force will reconsider a $71 million radar contract awarded to Raytheon, following protests by Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin.
Various media outlets reported on Wednesday that the re-evaluation means either the program could be subject to a new tender, or the existing three original bids could be considered afresh.
The Three Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar (3DELRR) was awarded to Raytheon on Oct. 6 last year over Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin.
Northrop filed a protest on October 21 with the Government Accountability Office (GAO), followed a day later by Lockheed, according to DefenseNews.
3DELRR aims to replace the service's aging TPS-75 expeditionary radars with 35 new systems. The system was the first to be awarded under the Pentagon's Defense Exportability Features Initiative that aims to bake in exportability to defense programs at the early stages of development.
The total contract includes the procurement of an additional three radar systems, for a total of six radar systems and product support, according to an announcement of the contract award.
