Raytheon has won a $225 million contract from an undisclosed member of the 13-nation group to increase the capability of Patriot Integrated Air and Missile Defense System.

"The added capability will strengthen our customer's protection against the evolving threats of tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and enemy aircraft," said Ralph Acaba, Raytheon vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense in a statement Monday.

Patriot is built on a foundation of more than 1,400 flight tests, 3,000 ground tests and the experiences of the five nations that have used Patriot in combat operations.

The contract was awarded less than 45 days after Poland officially requested Patriot from the United States government and the Netherlands awarded Raytheon a contract to begin upgrading its own Patriot systems.

Since December, 2014, the 13 Patriot partner nations have invested more than $7.2 billion with Raytheon in procuring and upgrading the system.
