Raytheon's Network Centric Systems in St. Petersburg, FL is being awarded a $10 million modification under previously awarded contract N00024-05-C-5101 for an additional four USG-2 Planar Array Antenna Assemblies (PAAA). The PAAA is a component of the Navy's Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) System, which extracts and sharing sensor-derived information among multiple sites in order to coordinate and extend the range of naval air defenses. When fully deployed, the CEC is also intended to allow U.S. naval forces to act as ballistic missile defense networks. Work on the PAA will be performed in Largo, FL (55%); St. Petersburg, FL (31%); Dallas, TX (9%); McKinney, TX (4%); and El Segundo, CA (1%), and is expected to be completed by January 2007. The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, DC issued the contract modification.
