$ 1 5 9 Million Navy Contract Awarded

The U.S. Navy has awarded a $159 million contract to the Lockheed Martin-Raytheon- Northrop Grumman team for the design, development, integration, and testing of the New Attack Submarine (NSSN) command, control, communications and intelligence (C3IS) for sonar, combat control and architecture subsystems. As one of the principal subcontractors to Lockheed Martin Federal Systems, Raytheon Electronics Systems (RES) will receive an initial contract for approximately $40 million dollars to begin design efforts on the program.

Raytheon will be responsible for the combat control subsystem, which coordinates all targeting and torpedo/missile launches, and for the transmit portion of the sonar subsystems. "This is an important win for our Portsmouth, R.I., operations and helps solidify our role as a key player in designing and producing combat control systems for the Navy," said Walter V. Trainor, vice president and manager of naval programs for RES.

The NSSN is the Navy's next-generation attack submarine and is designed to ensure that the Navy can maintain battlefield dominance of undersea warfare.

The Raytheon work will be performed at its Portsmouth, R.I. operations.
