Raytheon Wins Super Hornet Radar Pact
Raytheon won a $24.4 million contract with the U.S. Navy to equip Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) F/A-18F Super Hornets with the ALR-67(V)3 digital radar warning receiver. The contract, which Raytheon said represents the first international sale of the ALR-67(V)3 for the Super Hornet, calls for the delivery of 24 radar warning receivers to the RAAF. Deliveries under the contract will begin in October 2009 and are expected to be complete by September 2010. Work on the radar warning receiver is being done by Raytheon’s Electronic Warfare organization in Goleta, Calif., with support of facilities in El Segundo, Calif., Forest, Miss., and McKinney, Texas.
