Raytheon UK has been awarded a significant contract by the UK Ministry of Defence for delivery of a new GPS Anti-Jam Antenna System.

The contract is for an undisclosed number of advanced systems for deployment in operational theaters spanning multiple vehicle platforms. This UOR (Urgent Operational Requirement) contract is the first award for Raytheon's GPS Anti-Jam (AJ) Land product family.

Bob Delorge, chief executive, Raytheon UK, commented: "Raytheon UK has a track record of on-time delivery for GPS AJ systems, having delivered over 7,000 units for air and naval capabilities in the UK and U.S. Many of the military platforms used in operations are protected by the proven Raytheon GPS anti-jam technology, and the first order for our Land GPS AJ product family marks a significant success."

The contract will see the deployment of the systems under a very short timescale, with final delivery of the capability expected to be completed six months from contract award.
