Raytheon Awards CAES $200M US Navy SPY-6 Radar Assemblies Contract

RTX company Raytheon has awarded a $200 million follow-on, full-rate hardware production and sustainment contract to advanced radio frequency technology provider CAES. Under the award, CAES will continue supplying fully tested radar modules for the U.S. Navy’s AN/SPY-6 family of radars to which Raytheon holds a five-year manufacturing contract.

Raytheon and CAES have been partners in the SPY-6 program for several years, with CAES hardware deliveries already ongoing.

CAES President and CEO Mike Kahn, a 4×24 member and two-time Wash100 winner, said the company is proud to contribute to the performance and reliability of SPY-6. The radar family provides air and missile defense on six classes of U.S. Navy ships, CAES said.

SPY-6 provides several advantages over legacy radars, such as improved accuracy and greater detection capabilities. According to CAES, it can cover threats of cruise and ballistic missiles, hostile aircraft and surface ships.

CAES has a direct Navy contract, which was awarded to the company in April for the initial pre-production phase of the AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Consolidation transmitter.
