Raytheon Hires Ducommun for Tomahawk Components

Ducommun Incorporated has received contracts valued, in aggregate, at approximately $7.3 million from Raytheon to continue producing a variety of interconnect and electronic assemblies for the U.S. Navy’s Tomahawk cruise missile through 2016.

The Tomahawk can be launched from a ship or submarine and can fly into heavily defended airspace more than 1,000 miles away to conduct precise strikes on high-value targets with minimal collateral damage; more than 2,000 Tomahawks have been employed in combat to date.

The Company manufactures the assemblies at its Joplin, Mo., and Berryville and Huntsville, Ark., facilities.
