Tucson AZ (SPX) Jan 11, 2007
Raytheon has been awarded two contracts to perform support services for the Standard Missile-1 (SM-1) program for international customers.

The most recent contract, valued at $29 million, was awarded Jan. 3. Work includes missile assembly, testing and delivery for the governments of Spain and Egypt.

An earlier contract, valued at $31.8 million, was awarded Nov. 13, 2006. Work includes regraining of MK-56 dual-thrust rocket motors and SM-1 Block VIA missile assembly, testing and delivery. The countries serviced under this contract are France, Japan, Turkey, Bahrain, Poland, Italy and Chile.

SM-1 support work will be performed in Tucson, Ariz., Camden, Ark., and Sacramento, Calif.

"These contracts demonstrate Raytheon's continued commitment to provide its customers with lifetime mission support," said Frank Wyatt, Raytheon's Naval Weapon Systems vice president.

SM-1 is a medium-to-long range fleet-defense missile. The SM-1 missile is operational in the ships of multiple coalition navies, and Raytheon has been selected by the U.S. Navy to provide SM-1 support.
