$20M for 6 More F/A-18 Reconnaissance Pods Et. Al.
Raytheon Technical Services Co., Indianapolis, Ind., is being awarded a not-to-exceed $20 million modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-05-C-0009) for the procurement of six shared reconnaissance pods, six common data link suites, and four data storage cartridges for the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet aircraft. These kinds of systems can be extremely valuable; DID has covered Raytheon’s ATFLIR pods before, and the way they’ve changed F/A-18 operations during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Work will be performed in Indianapolis, IN (53.6%); Yeovil, United Kingdom (16.9%); Camden, NJ (10.6%); Logan, UT (4.4%); Danbury, CT (2.7%); Dallas, TX (2.6%); Clearwater, FL (2.5%); Albuquerque, NM (1.7%); Marion, VA (1.7%); Brea, CA (1.2%); Anaheim, CA (1%); Grand Rapids, MI (0.6%); and Majave, CA (0.5%), and is expected to be complete in March 2007. The Naval Air Systems Command in Patuxent River, MD issued the contract.
