Raytheon has won $402.6 million modification contract to exercise options for Air and Missile Defense Radar Program (AMDR) low-rate initial production (LRIP).

This modification will provide for three AMDR LRIP units. The LRIP units will be deployed on DDG 51 Flight III-class ships. Work is expected to be completed by March 2023, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Thursday.

AN/SPY-6(V) is the US navy's next generation integrated air and missile defense radar. Currently in production, and on track for the DDG-51 Flight III destroyer, SPY-6 provides the Navy with protection against air, surface, and ballistic missile threats.

The radar is built with individual ‘building blocks’ called Radar Modular Assemblies. Each RMA is a self-contained radar in a 2’x2’x2’ box. These RMAs can stack together to form any size array to fit the mission requirements of any ship.
