Raytheon Awarded $110M FMS Contract To Supply Paveway Laser-Guided Bombs To Philippines

The Pentagon has awarded a foreign military sales contract worth $110 million to Raytheon for the Paveway Family of Weapons, the Department of defense announced Thursday.

This contract involves foreign military sales (FMS) to the Philippines and countries with active cases to acquire Paveway weapon systems or have expressed interest in the Paveway Family of Weapons, the statement says.

The contractor will provide a total-package approach for Paveway-specific activities including but not limited to studies, production, certification, integration, and sustainment, it says.

Work will be performed in Tucson, Arizona, and is expected to be completed Feb. 9, 2029.

The Paveway family of laser-guided bombs are capable of converting "dumb" bombs into precision-guided munitions. The variants include Paveway II and Paveway III that are laser-guidance kits; and the Enhanced Paveway II, Enhanced Paveway III and Paveway IV use both laser and GPS guidance.
