$13.6M More for F-18 Radar Warning Receivers
Raytheon Co. Electronics Systems in Goleta, CA, received a $13.6 million modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-04-C-0123), exercising an option for the seventh full-rate-production lot of 15 AN/ALR-67(V)3 Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) systems for the U.S. Navy’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. While quantities were not given, a previous DID article noted a previous $44 million modification for 42 receivers.
The AN/ALR-67(V)3 RWR is a radar warning receiver that provides visual and aural alerts to F/A-18E/F 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 El Segundo, CA (39%); Forest, MI (27%); Goleta, CA (16%); Lansdale, PA (10%); Portland, OR (5%), and McKinney, TX (3%), and is expected to be complete in December 2007. The Naval Air Systems Command in Patuxent River, Md. issued the contract.
