No, the other way… Raytheon Co. in Tucson, AZ is being awarded a $14.1 million modification to a previous firm-fixed-price all-up-round full-rate production multiyear contract (N00019-04-C-0569). This covers the difference in materials and labor between Britain’s previous order for 65 vertically launched BGM-109 Block IV Tactical Tomahawk all-up-rounds, and the version that’s launched from submarine torpedo tubes. Britain’s submarines are the exclusive carries of its Tactical Tomahawk cruise missile inventory. Work will be performed in Huntsville, AL (50%); Bethel, CT (12%); Ontario, CA (11%); Tucson, AZ (8.4%); Santa Ana, CA (5%); Los Alamitos, CA (3%), and miscellaneous locations across the United States (10.6%), and is expected to be complete in February 2009. This contract is exercised through the Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River, MD.
