Raytheon has won a $91.5 million U.S. Air Force modification contract for the Miniature Air Launched Decoy Jammer (MALD-J) missile.

The contract modification is for Lot 8. Work will be performed in Tucson and is expected to be complete by June 2017. This award was booked in the first quarter 2015.

MALD is a state-of-the-art, low-cost expendable flight vehicle that is modular, air-launched and programmable. It weighs fewer than 300 pounds and has a range of approximately 500 nautical miles. MALD-J adds radar-jamming capability to the basic MALD platform. 

MALD confuses enemy air defenses by duplicating friendly aircraft flight profiles and radar signatures. MALD-J maintains all capabilities of MALD and adds jamming capabilities. 

Raytheon Company, with 2014 sales of $23 billion and 61,000 employees worldwide, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, security and civil markets throughout the world. Raytheon is headquartered in Waltham, Mass. 

Raytheon began delivery of MALD-Js in the fall of 2012.
