Raytheon To Begin Work On $600M Contract To Modernize US Army Strategic Software Systems

Raytheon will begin work on the $600-million, three-year contract to sustain and modernize missile defense and other strategic systems operated by the US Army, after the protest was withdrawn in February since the deal announcement in June 2017.

Within the next 30-60 days Raytheon will begin accepting directions from the Army to conduct software sustainment and system engineering services for critical systems including THAAD, AN/TPY-2 radars, the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense System, the Sea-Based X-Band Radar and Upgraded Early Warning Radars.

Raytheon will use the company's expertise in commercial software practices to speed delivery of software upgrades across the supported systems to improve them without interrupting critical missions. 

"We're bringing state-of-the-art, commercial software practices, such as DevOps and Agile, to make sure the systems the Army depends on stay ahead of evolving threats," said Todd Probert, vice president of Mission Support and Modernization at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services.

Work will be conducted at the Systems Simulation, Software and Integration Directorate, U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center at Redstone Arsenal. The contract is expected to directly employ approximately 800 people in the Huntsville, Ala., area and Raytheon will begin transitioning and or hiring experienced software and hardware engineers, program managers, and other professional services experts in the coming months.
