CAES wins $200mln deal for US Navy’s SPY-6 radar
CAES, a provider of mission-critical advanced RF technology, has won a $200 million follow-on, full-rate hardware production and sustainment award from Raytheon, an RTX business, for the US Navy’s SPY-6 radar.
Under the contract, CAES will provide fully tested radar module assemblies for the U.S. Navy’s AN/SPY-6 family of radars.
CAES has been a multi-year partner with Raytheon on the SPY-6 program, and has already begun delivering hardware.
“SPY-6 is one of the most advanced naval radars in production, and CAES is proud to contribute to the performance and reliability of this system,” said Mike Kahn, CAES President & CEO.
“We look forward to our continued work with Raytheon to provide our military with this critical capability.”
SPY-6 is the U.S. Navy family of radars that performs air and missile defense on six classes of ships.
SPY-6 can defend against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, hostile aircraft and surface ships simultaneously and offers several advantages over legacy radars
