Raytheon Supporting NAVSEA Sensor Netting System
Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, St. Petersburg, Florida, is awarded a $61,992,392 cost-plus-fixed-fee, cost-only modification to previously awarded contract (N00024-13-C-5212) for Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) design agent and engineering services requirements. CEC is a sensor netting system that significantly improves battle force anti-air warfare capability by extracting and distributing sensor-derived information such that the superset of this data is available to all participating CEC units.

The contract combines purchases for the Navy (86 percent) and the governments of Australia (9 percent) and Japan (5 percent) under the foreign military sales (FMS) program. Work will be performed in St. Petersburg, Florida, and is expected to be completed by September 2019.

The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
