CAES Secures $172M RTX Contract for Missile Program Support

RTX has awarded CAES a $172.7 million contract to supply critical missile data-link assemblies for an international missile program, CAES announced.

Mike Kahn, CAES president and CEO, highlighted the company’s proven expertise in radio frequency electronics and advanced electronic warfare capabilities.

Kahn, a 4×24 member and a past Wash100 awardee, further emphasized the importance of CAES’ continued partnership with RTX in advancing capabilities to address future threats.

Known for its work on various defense platforms, CAES acts as a critical subsystem provider in the missiles and munitions market, with its offerings encompassing a wide range of advanced electronic components, including antennas, telemetry assemblies and RF processors.

The RTX award follows CAES’ announcement in May that it is developing the Precision Strike Sensor Core, an advanced programmable transceiver, to support the U.S. Army’s Long Range Precision Fires initiative.

Last month, aerospace and defense company Honeywell announced its intent to acquire CAES from private equity firm Advent International in an all-cash transaction worth $1.9 billion.
