Air Force taps Raytheon for Global Broadcast Services modification

A $14.5 million contract modification for an Air Force project has been awarded to Raytheon Co.'s Intelligence and Information Systems unit in Reston, Va.

This contract modification is for the Global Broadcast Services program, the Defense Department's satellite-based system for distributing video, imagery and other large data files to users around the world.

With the modification, Raytheon will build 59 Army receive suites and 69 Air Force internet protocol receiver suites which will provide theater commanders the ability to broadcast theater-specific command and control information in a timely manner.

The work is scheduled to be completed by September 2007, said a DOD statement.
