NEC member Raytheon was recently awarded a $35 million contract by the US Air Force. Under the contract, Raytheon will provide aircraft integration and life-cycle technical support on an advanced bomb carriage and release system for aircraft.
Raytheon will service the joint miniature munitions bomb rack unit (JMM BRU) under this contract. The contract is an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract (IDIQ). Raytheon will integrate and support the JMM BRU aircraft throughout technology development, manufacturing and development, as well as the flight test and production phases. The advanced system Raytheon will develop will allow the US Air Force and US Navy to conduct more missions using less aircraft.
“JMM BRU end users now have a next evolution system that can be integrated with more than 11 different platforms,” said Todd Probert, vice president for the Mission Support and Modernization at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. “Our strength in engineering and design allowed us to offer the customer a system with improved combat turn-around time, enhanced system performance and improved warfighter readiness.”
The New England Council applauds Raytheon for its consistent dedication to providing America’s military with smarter technology.
