$30M in JSOW-Cs for Greece & Poland
Raytheon Co. in Tucson, AZ received a $30 million modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-07-C-0093). This represents an order for 118 Joint Standoff Weapon AGM-154C all-up-rounds (78 for Poland; 40 for Greece), 1 dummy air training missile (Greece); 108 CNU-672/E containers (67 for Poland; 41 for Greece), 2 PCMCIA cards (Greece), engineering/technical support, technical data, and administrative/financial data. As you can see, This contract combines purchases for the Governments of Poland ($21.3 million; 66.7%) and Greece ($8.7 million; 33.3%) under the Foreign Military Sales Program. Work will be performed in Tucson, AZ, and is expected to be complete in February 2009. The Naval Air Systems Command in Patuxent River, MD issued the contract.
The GPS-guided JSOW precision glide bombs, with their pop-out wings and range of up to 130 km/ 80 miles, will be deployed from Poland and Greece’s F-16C/Ds. Poland recently began receiving its aircraft. This order represents an increase over the small quantity requested along with Greece’s recent F-16 order, and will serve to match the JSOW-Cs its rival Turkey purchased to equip its own modernized and expanded F-16 fleet.
