Raytheon Secures $677M Navy Contract for SPY-6 Radars

The U.S. Navy has awarded RTX’s Raytheon a $677 million contract to produce additional AN/SPY-6(V) radars, expanding upon a larger $3 billion, five-year agreement established in March 2022.

The Navy will procure seven additional SPY-6 radars under the latest contract, raising the total number of radars on order to 38, RTX said.

The service has begun integrating SPY-6 radars into its surface fleet, starting with the USS Jack H. Lucas, commissioned in October 2023.

Meanwhile, the USS Richard M. McCool Jr. is the first ship to deploy the (V)2 variant, which offers air traffic control functionality alongside missile defense.

Barbara Borgonovi, president of Raytheon’s naval power unit, said the SPY-6 radars significantly enhance the Navy’s surface fleet capabilities, providing superior air surveillance, electronic warfare protection and improved detection.

RTX said the SPY-6 family is expected to be deployed on 65 Navy ships over the next decade, strengthening the service’s defenses against air, surface and ballistic threats.
