Raytheon Company has received a resume work order from the US Navy to commence development of the new Air and Missile Defense Radar.

On October 10, 2013, Raytheon was awarded a $385 million contract for the engineering and modeling development phase design, development, integration, test and delivery of Air and Missile Defense S-Band Radar (AMDR-S) and Radar Suite Controller (RSC).

AMDR is the US Navy's next generation integrated air and missile defense radar and is being designed for Flight III Arleigh Burke (DDG 51) class destroyers beginning in 2016.

"The Raytheon team and plans are in place, ready to move forward on the program," said Raytheon's Kevin Peppe, vice president of Integrated Defense Systems' Seapower Capability Systems business area. "Our focus is now dedicated to delivering this critical AMDR capability to the Navy."

Under the contract, Raytheon will build, integrate and test the AMDR-S and RSC Engineering Development Models (EDMs). For the ship sets covered under this contract, the AMDR suite will integrate with the existing AN/SPQ-9B X-band radar. The base contract begins with design work leading to Preliminary Design Review and culminates with system acceptance of the AMDR-S and RSC engineering development models at the end of testing.

This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $1.6 billion.
