The U.S. Navy awarded Raytheon $66.5 million to deliver Short Take-Off/Vertical Landing (STOVL) engines and related support for the F-35 program.

“This modification provides increment (2) funding for one Short Take-Off/Vertical Landing (STOVL) and one Conventional Take-Off and Landing Block 4 developmental engines, and procures one STOVL nozzle module, one STOVL three-bearing swivel module, two STOVL initial spare engines, and one initial spare power module in support of the F-35 Lightning II aircraft program for the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and non-U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) participants,” the U.S. DoD said in a statement Friday.

Work is expected to be completed in December 2022.
