EA-6B launches HARM(click to view full) Raytheon Government & Missile Systems in Tucson, AZ received an $8.9 million modification to a previously awarded indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity contract (N00019-03-D-0009). It exercises an option for depot level repair, maintenance, and post-production services of up to 300 High Speed Anti-Radiation Missiles (HARMs) for the U.S. Air Force ($7,960,411; 89.6%); the U.S. Navy ($396,694; 4.43%); and the Governments of Korea ($437,846; 4.93%) and Turkey ($92,766; 1.04%) under the Foreign Military Sales Program. Work will be performed in Tucson, AZ and is expected to be complete in May 2009. The Naval Air Systems Command issued the contract. The AGM-88 HARM missile is designed to find enemy radar installations up to 150 km/ 90 miles away, and destroy them by homing in on their emissions. It was first introduced in 1983, and upgraded versions remain the mainstay of the SEAD(Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses) role among American and allied airpower. Tactical responses to HARM have led to the development of various new missiles intended to fill its role more effectively, however, including Raytheon’s AGM-88E AARGM.
