The U.S. Air Force awarded Raytheon an undefinitized contract action (UCA) for a Foreign Military Sales contract not to exceed $75.6 million to design and implement an Air and Missile Defense Operation Center (ADOC) for the State of Qatar, which will be a first of its kind in the region.

The acquisition is part of an Armed Forces Modernization and recapitalization effort announced by Qatar in March of this year and announced by the Department of Defense on November 26th, 2014.

The ADOC will provide Qatar with an advanced IAMD capability including integration of U.S. air defense systems, such as Patriot, the Early Warning Radar and THAAD, with European air defense systems and radars. The ADOC will also integrate with Qatar's Raytheon-made Air Operations Center (AOC).

"This contract reinforces the depth of our systems integration capability and expertise in integrated air and missile defense," said Raytheon's Dave Gulla, vice president of Integrated Defense Systems' Global Integrated Sensors business area.

"The ADOC will have the latest command and control, cyber, and information assurance capability in partnership with the Air Force to enhance regional security and meet the State of Qatar's requirements."
