Army tasks Raytheon with reconfiguring Patriot system

The Army has awarded Raytheon Co. a $38.6 million contract to make major hardware and software upgrades to reconfigure the Patriot Missile Air Defense System.

As prime contractor and systems integrator for the Patriot Advanced Capability-3, or PAC-3, configuration, Raytheon Co. will install the upgrades to Patriot test stations and engineering to address obsolescence in the factory and key suppliers, the company said.

The contract calls for Raytheon to test equipment upgrades and engineering as the first step in the upgrade of three Patriot battalions, totaling 12 fire units, from PAC-2 to PAC-3 configuration.

Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will perform the work.
