Raytheon Wins $119M US Navy Contract For Tomahawk Sensor Integration Support

Raytheon has won a more than $119-million contract to advance the targeting and communications functions of the Tomahawk Block IV sea-launched cruise missile.

"Raytheon Co., Tucson, Arizona, is being awarded $119,021,912 against a previously issued contract for analysis, trade studies, architecture, modeling, simulation development, evaluation, and prototyping activities for the integration of seeker suite technology and processing capabilities into the Tactical Tomahawk Block IV missile system in support of the Maritime Strike Tomahawk Program," the US Department of Defense announced in a press release Wednesday.

Work will occur primarily in Tucson, Arizona; Dallas, Texas; and Boulder, Colorado through August 2019.

The Naval Air Systems Command will obligate $9.4 million on the award from the service branch’s fiscal 2017 research, development, test and evaluation funds.

The Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile is designed to circle for hours above or away from its target and change course on command. Moreover, the missile has the capability to send an image of its target to controllers just before it hits the target.
