The award provides additional funding for the second of four one-year options to the fiscal year 2004 base award for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) to provide engineering services in support of Patriot air and missile defense systems.

"This contract reflects customer confidence in our ability as prime contractor to continue to provide a reliable, scaleable Patriot air and missile defense capability," said Rick Yuse, vice president, Raytheon IDS Integrated Air Defense business area.
