Raytheon Missile Systems is being rewarded $172.8 million contract action to procure 200 AGM-154C Block III joint standoff weapons, 212 containers, various component parts and support equipment for spares, and engineering and technical support for the government of Qatar.

Work is expected to be completed in June 2020, the US Department of Defense said in a statement on Wednesday.

The JSOW C-1 is designed to provide fleet forces with the capability and flexibility to engage moving maritime targets, while retaining its robust capability against stationary land targets. The weapon is a modification to the existing JSOW C, which adds a weapon datalink radio and modified seeker software to increase capability for the anti-surface warfare mission. JSOW C-1 is the world’s first network-enabled weapon with a range of more than 100 kilometers.
