TEWKSBURY, Mass. – The U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded $41.6 million to Raytheon Co. to continue providing systems engineering support for the Ship Self-Defense System MK 2 anti-air defense hardware designed for installation aboard the Navy’s amphibious assault ships.

The Navy’s Ship Self-Defense System allows for automated integration of anti-air defense equipment such as sensors, radar systems and self-defense weapons systems on an open-architecture platform, aimed particularly at countering sea-skimming anti-ship cruise missiles.

Under the contract, announced Monday, Raytheon will complete development of CVN/Amphibious Modernization Advanced Capability Build 12/Technical Insertion 12 for the Ship Self-Defense System MK 2.

Work will be performed at the Raytheon facilities in Middletown and San Diego and is expected to be completed by September 2017, Raytheon said.
