Raytheon has been awarded a $104 million contract from the US Navy's Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) to conduct operations and maintenance for the Relocatable Over-the-Horizon Radar (ROTHR) program.

ROTHR is long-range surveillance radar used by the US government in counter narco-terrorism operations. Raytheon designed and built ROTHR and will provide operations support, modernization and maintenance of the radar system.

"Raytheon and ROTHR technology help to make the world a safer place," said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS). "Our team will work closely with the U.S. Navy's Forces Surveillance Support Center and the Joint Interagency Task Force South, tracking hundreds of illegal activities every year that threaten to enter our borders."

ROTHR is a high-frequency radar system originally designed and built to provide long-range detection and tracking of aircraft and ships. Each radar provides more than 2.5 million square miles of coverage area, resulting in extremely low operational costs.

"Raytheon will provide critical mission support to ROTHR, collecting vital detection and tracking data for operational commanders," said Todd Probert, vice president of Mission Support and Modernization at Raytheon IIS. "This new contract demonstrates trust in Raytheon to bring innovative, no-fail sustainment, modernization and operations support to the critical mission of securing our borders".
