The US Navy awards Raytheon a $23 million contract in support of Evolved Seasparrow Missile (ESSM) production.

Raytheon will procure ESSM design agent, in-service support, and technical engineering support services under the awarded contract, the Pentagon said in a statement Thursday. These requirements support the ESSM production.

The ESSM program is an international cooperative effort to design, develop, test, and procure ESSM missiles. The ESSM provides enhanced ship defense.

This is a sole-source contract pursuant to an international agreement between the U.S. and nine other countries.

Work will be performed in Tuscon, Arizona (72 percent); Raufoss, Norway (7 percent); Ottobrunn, Germany (7 percent); Hengelo OV, Netherlands (5 percent); Richmond, Australia (4 percent); Mississauga, Canada (2 percent); Madrid, Spain (1 percent); Ankara, Turkey (1 percent); Grenaa, Denmark; and Koropi, Greece (less than 1 percent each), and is expected to be completed by December 2017, the statement said.

Fiscal 2017 other procurement (Navy) funds in the amount of $9,297,886 will be obligated at time of award and will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
