Raytheon has won a $17 million modification contract to exercise an option for providing Zumwalt capability and design agent support to the Standard Missile-2 (SM-2).

Fiscal 2017 and 2018 weapons procurement (Navy); and foreign military sales funding in the amount of $16,951,832 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia is the contracting activity; United States (US) Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.

According to the company, the SM-2 is a fleet-area air defense weapon, providing superior anti-air warfare and limited anti-surface warfare capability against today’s advanced anti-ship missiles and aircraft out to 90 nautical miles and an altitude of 65,000 feet. It has an area- and self-defense flight test history with more than 2,700 flight tests from domestic and international ships.

Work is expected to be completed by March 2022.
