Raytheon Secures USD 60.3 Million U.S. Navy Contract

Raytheon Company​ has been awarded a $60.3 million U.S. Navy contract to develop and integrate the total ship electronics systems for LPD 26, the 10th ship of the Navy’s LPD 17 class of expeditionary warfare ships.

Under the contract, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems extends its role as the total ship electronics systems integrator for all LPD 17-class ships. Raytheon will provide the Shipboard Wide Area Network; engineering and ship control systems; navigation data distribution system; magnetic signature control system; wire-free portable and integrated voice communication systems; and the AN/SPS-73 navigation radar.

Raytheon’s advanced and reliable ship systems integrated onboard the LPD 17 class continue to demonstrate proven and predictable performance,” said Kevin Peppe, Raytheon IDS’ vice president of Seapower Capability Systems. “Leveraging the technology advancements, experience and success gained on the LPD 17, DDG 1000 and CVN 78 programs, we continue to deliver mature, common and affordable solutions for the U.S. Navy’s family of ships.”

This contract follows the successful U.S. Navy sea trial of the San Diego (LPD 22), during which Raytheon’s integrated ship systems performed as designed, meeting all performance requirements.

Predictable Performance and Full Life-cycle Support

In addition to its total ship electronics systems integrator role, Raytheon is the prime contractor for life-cycle engineering and support of Raytheon-designed and developed equipment for the LPD 17 class. As the trusted partner for LCE&S since 2005, Raytheon manages the large-scale integration, maintenance, upgrades and service support for these critical ship systems.

Raytheon recently delivered the Ship Self-Defense System MK 2 open-architecture combat management system for LPD 26, which leverages technology and investment from the Total Ship Computing Environment Infrastructure developed for the DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class destroyer

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
