Raytheon has been awarded an $18.6 million follow-on contract for High-speed Anti-Radiation Missile Targeting System (HTS) contractor logistics support services to the United States Air Force.
The contract provides depot repair and sustaining engineering activities. The contract includes a one-year period of performance with three one-year options. This contract award is the result of a sole-source acquisition, US department of defense said in a statement Friday.
The AGM-88 HARM is a tactical, air-to-surface anti-radiation missile designed to home in on electronic transmissions coming from surface-to-air radar systems. The targeting system provides situational awareness to pilots on the types and locations of surface-to-air defense radars, as well as passing ranging solutions to the HARM missile when launched. It consists of a pod, a High-speed Anti-Radiation Missile, an aircraft launcher interface computer and a HTS-unique F-16 software.
Work is expected to be completed by Nov. 30, 2019.
