US Navy awards contract to Raytheon for three AN/SPY-6(V)1 radar systems

15 March 2019

US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) awarded Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems a USD402.7 million fixed-price-incentive, firm-target contract modification, exercising options for the Air and Missile Defense Radar Program (AMDR) for low-rate initial production (LRIP) AN/SPY-6(V)1 radar systems.

Under the modification, NAVSEA is buying three AMDR LRIP AN/SPY-6(V)1 units.

The LRIP units will be deployed on DDG 51 Flight III-class ships. Work is expected to be completed by March 2023.

At the same, Raytheon is looking for ways to get modified AN/SPY-6 radar into Flight IIA destroyers, said Scott Spence, company director of Naval Radar Systems.

“We’re working with the navy to accelerate the backfit programme for SPY-6 in the IIA ships,” Spence said on 15 March during a media briefing on the radar programme.
