Raytheon Received $235 Million Production Contract for Standard MIssile-6 from U.S. Navy

Introduction:
Raytheon Company was awarded $235 million for Standard Missile-6 all-up round production missiles and spares from U.S. Navy.

Features:

The delivery of the Missile-6 will start in 2018 and it will deploy on Aegis Cruisers and destroyer to support U.S. Navy fleet Operation.

The contracted missiles will include an anti-surface capability.The SM-6 also set a new record for maximum down-range and maximum cross-range intercepts in over-the-horizon missions. The display of offensive capability established SM-6 as a multi-mission missile with expanded capabilities in Anti-Air Warfare, Sea-Based Terminal and Anti-Surface Warfare.

"The SM-6 offers three missions, making it the most affordable missile per defended area and threat set," said Mike Campisi, Standard Missile-6 senior program director. "The SM-6 effector continues to perform beyond expectations and beyond its original mission."

The final assembly of SM-6 takes place at Raytheon's state-of-the-art production facility at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama.
