2005 Orders for SM-2 Standard Missiles: $266M
Yesterday, we noted a $29.6 million contract (N00024-03-C-5330) to provide engineering and technical services in support of the Standard Missile-2 Guided Missile Program for Foreign Military Sales (FMS). As a follow-on to that contract, Raytheon Co. in Tucson, AZ received a $266 million firm-fixed-price modification for production of the FY 2005 SM-2 missile order to equip the U.S. Navy and the navies of Japan, the Netherlands, Germany, Taiwan, Canada, and Korea respectively. The SM-2 is the ultra-modern air defense missile on US warships equipped with advanced AEGIS radars, and a variant called the SM-3 is being tested as part of U.S. ballistic missile defense plans.
