Raytheon has won a contract valued $78 million to support Qatar’s Early Warning Radars.
This contract modification is for contractor logistic support for the Qatar Early Warning Radar for a period of five years.
Raytheon had 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.
