Raytheon Awarded US Navy Contract For Aircraft Infrared Systems

The US Navy has awarded over a $59 million worth contract to Raytheon for logistics services in support of MV-22 Ospreys and CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopters.

The contract, awarded by U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Weapon Systems Support, is a five-year performance-based logistics contract that enables Raytheon to support forward-looking infrared systems on the V-22 and CH-53 aircraft, the Pentagon said Wednesday.

The first delivery order for the first year of the contract will be issued concurrently with the award of the basic contract in the amount of $15,971,160.  Work will be performed by the contractor in McKinney, Texas; El Segundo, California; and Jacksonville, Florida, the statement added. 

The forward-looking infrared system is a thermographic camera used for infrared and thermal imaging.

On the MV-22 and CH-53 aircraft, the forward-looking infrared radiometer system is used to help pilots navigate in inclement weather conditions or during night operations as the system detects heat sources on the ground in order to formulate a image for pilots to view during flight.
