Raytheon Company has won a $270 million contract from the US Navy's Air Systems Command to support V-22 Osprey systems.
Under the contract, Raytheon will provide V-22 software support activity systems and software engineering, avionics integration, testing, and acquisition support. This work begins this month and is planned to conclude December 2019, the company announced on Tuesday.
"We have been part of the V-22 program since its start. Our expertise in modernizing aircraft like V-22 will ensure its pilots have the best tools to be combat effective and return safely," said Todd Probert, vice president for Mission Support and Modernization.
The V-22 is a joint-service, multi-mission combat aircraft that combines the mobility of a helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.
