$52.7M for More TOW2A Missiles
Raytheon Co. in Tucson, AZ received a $52.7 million modification to a firm-fixed-price sole-source contract initiated on July 15, 2002 for TOW 2A anti-armor missiles. The TOW 2A is an improved version of the original Tube-launched Optically-tracked Wire-guided missile that’s designed for “bunker busting” attacks on fortifications, bunkers and urban structures. It can also defeat reactive armor if used against vehicles. The TOW 2A has a range of 3,750m, and is scheduled to arm the US Army’s Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM) variant of the Stryker combat vehicle family.
Work will be performed in Tucson, AZ and is expected to be complete by June 30, 2007. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Army Aviation and Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal, AL issued the contract modification (W31P4Q-04-C-0061).
