Raytheon Gets $19.8 Million Contract for ALR-69A(V) Radar Warning Receiver Program

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 21, 2009 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has been awarded a $19.8 million contract for the continued production of ALR-69A(V) radar warning receiver systems for the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, Robins Air Force Base, Ga.

The contract calls for fabrication and testing of 34 all-digital receivers under the ALR-69A(V) low rate initial production program. Deliveries of the systems are expected to begin in March 2011 and end in June 2012.

"We are delighted we can continue to provide the enhanced capabilities of the ALR-69A(V) to our U.S. and international customers," said Scott Jackson, general manager of electronic warfare systems. "Our digital RWR technology is a game changer for the warfighter and dramatically improves crew survivability and situational awareness."

An upgrade replacement of the ALR-69(V) installed on U.S. Air Force C-130, F-16 and A-10 aircraft, the ALR-69A(V) is part of Raytheon's portfolio of radar warning receivers that includes the ALR-67(V)3, currently in production for domestic and international F/A-18s. More than 442 ALR-67(V)3 units have been produced and shipped.

Capabilities of the ALR-69A(V) system include significantly enhanced situational awareness; improved air-crew survivability; and a solution to parts-obsolescence issues with existing systems. The digital architecture of the system permits future programming of advanced tactical targeting techniques for rapid and accurate multiplatform geo-location of threats, and easy reprogramming to keep pace with emerging threats.
