Raytheon has won a $57 million modification contract from the United States (US) Navy to exercise an option to produce, test and deliver fully integrated Navy Multiband Terminals (NMT). 

NMT is a multiband capable satellite communications terminal that provides protected and wideband communications. NMT supports extremely high frequency (EHF) / advanced EHF low data rate / medium ata rate / extended data rate; super high frequency; military ka (transmit and receive), and global broadcast service receive-only communications.

Work is expected to be complete by December 2020, US Department of Defense said in a statement Thursday.

NMT is expected to be installed in approximately 300 U.S. Navy ships, submarines and shore stations, replacing several existing SATCOM systems developed and maintained by Raytheon since the mid-1980s, according to Raytheon.
