Raytheon to Build Communications Infrastructure for Qatar Early Warning Radar
Raytheon's early warning radar

Raytheon has won a $9.2 million modification contract to build communications infrastructure at Qatar Early Warning Radar (QEWR) site.

The company won a $1.06 billion deal to provide an early warning radar (EWR) to Doha in February 2017. The Qatari radar is expected to add long-range detection to the country’s layered Integrated Air and Missile Defense architecture, which includes Patriot systems and an Air Defense Operation Center. A layered defense takes fuller advantage of the specialized abilities of different radars and interceptors. The EWR will provide extra warning time to alert command centers and cue fire control systems.

Work for the current contract will be performed in Woburn, Massachusetts; and Qatar, and is expected to be completed by December 2020.
