Raytheon Missiles & Defense, a Raytheon Technologies business, has been awarded a $182 million contract for the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System, a highly adaptable mid-range air defense solution.
These systems are expected to be provided to Ukraine in response to the nation’s need to defend against advanced air threats.
“Raytheon Missiles & Defense and our partners are working diligently to quickly deliver this critical, proven air defense capability to help the Ukrainian people defend their homeland,” said Tom Laliberty, president of Land Warfare & Air Defense, a Raytheon Missiles & Defense business area.
The NASAMS air defense system was jointly developed and produced by RMD and Norway’s Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace. It consists of the sentinel radar, advanced medium range air-to-air missile and KDA’s Fire Distribution Center.
“Ukraine will join a dozen nations around the globe who rely on NASAMS to defeat a multitude of threats, including cruise missiles, aircraft, and unmanned systems,” Laliberty said.
