Raytheon has won a $8.4 million modification contract for field team support services for US Air Force’s Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) development test mission support.

The contract includes test planning, test operations, test reporting and telemetry analysis. This contract modification provides for exercise of the third option for an additional 12 months of services to support ground tests, captive flight tests and live fire tests conducted for developmental purposes up to and including operational test readiness reviews, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.

The effort also encompasses management and maintenance of AMRAAM separation test vehicles and other assets used for the test programs. 

Total cumulative face value of the contract is $46.8 million.

Work for the current contract is expected to be completed by September 5, 2020.
