Raytheon was awarded an $11.7 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy for the full-rate-production of 14 AN/ALR-67(V)3 Radar Warning Receivers (RWR) to support F/A-18 legacy aircraft programs for the Canadian Air Force and the Swiss Air Force. The Navy said the RWR provides visual and aural alerts to F/A-18 aircrew upon detection of ground-based, ship-based or airborne radar emitters. It is designed to enhance pilot situational awareness by providing accurate identification, lethality and azimuth displays of hostile and friendly emitters. Work will be performed in Forest, Miss., Goleta, Calif., Lansdale, Pa., Brisbane, Australia, Chatsworth, Calif., El Segundo, Calif., McKinney, Texas, and Portland, Ore., and is expected to be completed in 2011.
