Raytheon has been awarded a $450 million contract for Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) II integrated engineering change proposal contract.

Work is expected to be completed by Aug. 31, 2024. This award is the result of a sole-source acquisition. 

Raytheon, the US Air Force and US Navy have begun SDB II bomb integration activities on the F-35, F/A-18E/F and F-15E aircraft.
